Alameda Point Environmental Report: Ospreys’ nesting effort draws competition atop maritime ship, September 1, 2013


The ospreys returned to Alameda Point again in 2013 to nest, but not at their previous nesting site on the old light stand at the entrance to the Seaplane Lagoon. This year they settled atop one of the towering kingposts holding a cable and boom hoist on the maritime ship Admiral William Callaghan. Unfortunately, a third osprey interfered with the nesting pair.
