Strange location for an active Osprey nest. It’s located in some kind of empty paved construction lot next to a small VFW building on the west end of Victory Ave in Brookhaven (Suffolk), just east of Horseblock Road.
There is a strange structural metal platform, supported by 4 telephone poles and the nest is on top of this structure. The nest has been there all winter and today an Osprey was on top of it.
This location is not in sight of any water, although the Carman’s River is fairly close to the east, and Wertheim NWF to the south.
I pass it several times a week and there seems to be very few cars inside, can’t imagine what goes on in there.
