In 2013 Puget Sound Energy moved an Osprey nest from a live power pole next to I-405 in Renton. This link tells their story back then.
Last year, 2014, every day I came to work I watched this Osprey family raise their baby. I was fascinated by their ability to nest so close to one of the region’s busiest freeways. Yes, right at the northbound Interstate 405 exit to Highway 167 in Renton, there they were perched above it all.
Friday, as I drove to work, I was delighted that they had returned. To add to my delight, when I reviewed the photos I took, I found that the nest has what I think is a video camera on it. That means the Crow Stalker will have to do some research to find if that is in use by anyone.
In the meantime, enjoy the view of the nesting platform next to a freeway.
