Welcome back, feathered friends
Last Sunday’s bird-watching tour at the Freshkills Park site was eventful. Not only did we catch a glimpse of a snow goose fishing around the storm water basin on East Mound, we also noticed this osprey sitting in a nest atop the tall perch in Main Creek. This is the same nest that housed a family of osprey last year–our public tours witnessed the laying, hatching and fledging of two osprey chicks between May and August. (We also featured osprey in our winter newsletter.) We only spotted one adult in the nest on Sunday, but we were happy to welcome him and hope he’s the ambassador of a continued osprey presence onsite.
Our next bird-watching tour will be May 23rd. Registration for that tour will be open in mid-April. Add yourself to our newsgroup to be alerted–these tours fill up quickly!
