Today saw two Osprey on a nest on the light pole in center field at Greenwich Byram Shore Park. I climbed to an overlook, but could not get enough height to see if there are any chicks as yet. Very hot day, & female was sitting with her wings open in a 'shading' position, so perhaps there are young.
