Streaming online video from a camera peering into the nest lets anyone watch the domestic drama of an osprey pair (also called fish hawks), and hopefully their spring 2012 chicks. Naturalists say this breeding season has brought about 30 pairs returning to the 8-mile long barrier beach park and its sedge islands in Barnegat Bay.
