Went to Allenhurst Water Tower last week and looked and looked but did not find the Peregrines. I will now be searching for the Radio Tower to visit the Ospreys setting up housekeeping. I have also been around Asbury Park High School looking for the Eagles that are there. There was a Great White Egret on Deal Lake today, off Wickapecko Dr by golf course,that was "sleeping" and a couple of Hooded Mergansers. Great finds James!!!!

The resident peregrines really aren’t happy about it and let that be known although the Osprey were unflappable. > https://flic.kr/p/24oYS13 > The raven that tried to nest on the water tower did however get the message and moved its nest somewhere else. On the water, there are still a few common and red breasted mergs although their numbers are way down. Wood ducks can be heard whistling along the banks of Interlaken. I also had a flock of about 200 robin overhead and tracked them to some American Holly growing along Main St. Finally,there was this group of 3 GBH sunning themselves over by Asbury HS.
