North Fork Bob, the osprey, is back in Downs Creek in Cutchogue as of April 11, after spending the winter in the wilds of Venezuela. Bob, who has come home too late to find a nesting site since he was fitted with a radio transmitter by ornithologists four years ago, returned home on April 4 last year. Ospreys usually begin coming back to the East End around St. Patrick’s Day.
