PHOTOS: Osprey's Nest at Short Beach

The nest sits beautifully atop a telephone pole at the Nissequogue beach.

One of the best nature sights of summer in Smithtown is the osprey's nest atop a telephone pole at Short Beach in Nissequogue. The nest is overwhelmed with earth tones with slight bits of bright yellow, blue and red mixed in – a great compliment to a cloud-filled blue summer sky. While the sun wasn't beaming and the sky was gray for the photos in this set, the nest is still beautiful enough to stand out on its own.

If I'm not mistaken I think Smithtown has more parks than any other township on the Island. Wonderful quality of life enhanced by beautiful scenes like this. Thanks for sharing. I saw a spotted fawn the other day near Sunken Meadow.. and I always enjoy seeing the large hawks (?) perched high on the lamp posts of the Sunken Meadow Pkwy. Anyone know what they are?

Red tail hawks....I also love seeing them. They are also always by the KP post office area.
