Commodore Park Osprey Family Growing

A pair of osprey that moved in to a nesting platform Seattle City Light helped install at Commodore Park is now raising a pair of young.

Back in March, Seattle City Light helped, Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) install a new nesting platform for osprey at Commodore Park near the Hiram M. Chittenden locks. (Read the Power Lines post here.)

A mating pair of osprey moved in quickly and successfully hatched two babies. We got a good look at the birds recently so we could share it with you.

One of the parents watches the two baby osprey while the other searches for food.
