Ospreys Are On Their Way Back

Ospreys return to New Jersey this month. According to the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey’s blog, “In New Jersey, ospreys arrive on breeding grounds in late March, usually to the same nests each year, meaning they have a high level of site fidelity. Older more experienced birds arrive first, especially males. Ospreys mate for life and are monogamous. Pairs begin courtship and nest building in early April.”
