Osprey platform on the Duwamish River with large, twiggy nest. Visible from the Green River Trail, from a nice distance (not too close to intrude on Ospreys). There is no nest 9/17/20

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."

#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.

The nest is located on the outer edge of a cell tower, built on the southeast side. In the center of the tower, there is an exclusion/pyramid device (see photo), which I was told is part of the SeaTac Bird Air Strike Hazard Program.
