osprey nest 050913 2A precariously leaning home to ospreys in the Navesink River has been fixed, according to a report on a conservation website.

The pole, a decommissioned channel marker between Fair Haven and Middletown, was nearly toppled during Hurricane Sandy, according to the original report by Ben Wurst, habitat program manager for the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey.

The work to right the pole occurred in March, Wurst tells redbankgreen. But he’s mum on who did it.

“They requested to remain anonymous,” he said in an email.
