Alameda Point Environmental Report: Ospreys nesting at Alameda Point interrupted again in 2014, June 15, 2014


In early June a pair of returning ospreys looked ready for the day in their newly made nest atop a parking lot light pole at Alameda Point, but they had no chicks to attend to. After enduring nest removal earlier during its construction on a maritime ship and interference later from a third osprey, hopes for osprey fledglings this year had faded. An ad hoc group of osprey watchers is hoping a dedicated osprey platform can be erected at Alameda Point in a spot where competing interests and annoyances of daily commotion don’t intrude into the reproductive efforts of the ospreys.
