Osprey at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, with Atlantic City beyond. Photo taken August 1st.

I was on vacation with extended family and now I’m home.

I don’t remember ospreys at the shore in South Jersey when I was a kid. This photo makes me happy.


According to the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ, there were 50 nests in New Jersey in 1974 and now there are 1,000. Wow!
