Osprey Banding
Unhatched osprey eggs are sent to the state so shell measurements can be made to determine the health of the laying bird. Hans Toft, natural science teacher at Cape May County Technical High School, and a volunteer group of his students, ventured into the back-bay marshes between the high school and Stone Harbor, to count and band nested osprey chicks as part of the state's bird banding program.
