Gabriel, Pardon my delayed response, as I was traveling I have nesting data on 124 osprey nests as part of my Cayuga Lake Basin Osprey Project and can easily tell you the few osprey nests by the Cayuga inlet. I know where there are GBHE rookeries, in the area, but not near Stewart Park and the Inlet where the birds hang out.
Osprey nest occupied by breeding pairs in the southern end of lake: Stewart Park behind Youth Bureau, Robert Treman Marine Park, Union Field. This is the southern point of their nesting in the basin as far as I know. Let me know if you find any. Osprey nest platforms not yet occupied in the southern end of lake: southend of Stewart Park footbridge to Newman Golf Course, Newman Golf Course west end, Hogs Hole, and Cherry Street. Other area osprey pairs that also fish in the inlet and southern end of Cayuga are nesting at McGowen Fields and the Cornell Ponds. Query cayugabirds-l ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) about the locations of heron rookeries on Six Mile Creek and other promising places. EBird might also be a help. Let me know if you need more info or find any nests in the lake's southern end or inlet that are not listed on the Cayuga Lake Trail Map (below), which includes 69 nests in the Cayuga Basin visible from public roads. https://ft.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid= fb09815967204bfc9386fe2d4d78f1b0 Eyes to the sky!
