Osprey Nesting Platform Installation in the Meadowlands

The osprey, formally known as the fish hawk, is one of New Jersey’s largest raptors, and well known along coastal marshes. Habitat deterioration has resulted in less-than-optimal places for this species to nest. This installation over open water is intended to provide a nesting place for osprey in the Meadowlands Estuary.
