The Pennington BE nest is monitored by a volunteer for the CWFNJ Bald Eagle Project. I see the nest failed in 2018, not sure of the reason. In 2018, there were 204 pairs of Bald Eagle that were monitored in NJ.
You can read more about the conservation project here:
There are Annual reports as well as other publications if you scroll down
