You don’t need a boat to see these ospreys! Bring your binoculars and take a walk along 64th Street from the Narrows at First Landing State Park and help survey the osprey population there. Every year in June raptor expert ReeseLukei and Lynnhaven River Now member Robert Brown, who keeps almost daily tabs on the dozen or so nests in that vicinity, tally the active nests and their young. This is a unique opportunity to learn about and see the many ospreys that nest the natural way in trees and snags, instead of out on the water on man-made platforms and navigational structures. Lukei estimates that 10 percent of the osprey population on the Lynnhaven River nest in this area of the park.
Don't forget to wear comfortable shoes and insect repellent!
