Well-established nest with a long history of success. It is located in the parking area for a commercial concern on the bank of the Duwamish River (Waterway).

This platform in Commodore Park was a lovely replacement placed in 2012 for the nest that was removed from atop the railroad trestle. Sadly, at this location, after years of successful nesting, someone was observed to fly a drone over the nest (2016). The adults immediately abandoned the site. The Commodore Park nest at Chittendon Locks has remained abandoned / empty. They are said to have "moved up the ship canal to Ballard Oil."

This nest is located on the ship canal atop a derelict ships mast and light bar. The pair that were dislodges on West Commodore Way were bothered by humans and dogs. So they packed up and moved. Trying to keep a shipyard photographer and his drone away from them.

#1107 is atop a high mast light pole in the middle of the BNSF tracks off Gilman near Emerson / 22nd (some 10 blocks north of Balmer Yard). Note that #4229 (Elliott Bay / Bike trail, just south of Balmer Yard) looks similar.
