Watch: Osprey Nest Over Main Creek
Every year, Osprey (Pandion halibuts) make their summer homes at Freshkills Park, where they build nests on high structures above the Park’s creeks. They hunt for fish in the waterways and raise their young. Since 2018, parks researchers have been monitoring the breeding success of the Osprey at Freshkills Park. Check out the video below for a look at one of the nests above Freshkills Park’s Main Creek — with three chicks!
