About Our Osprey Cam

Osprey love to nest on high structures near good fishing grounds, therefore tall power poles can look like a great place to build a nest. Their nests can cause power outages and fires when sticks interfere with electrical equipment.

This was the case in April 2000 when an osprey pair attempted to build a nest on Cowlitz PUD's distribution pole. Our line crews deemed this a safety risk for the public and for the osprey, so we designed and built an alternate higher nesting platform, near the same pole where they originally tried to build a nest.

The ospreys accepted the alternate nesting platform and for 15 years, a pair has been returning to their summer home in Cowlitz County. We look forward to their arrival this spring and are excited to launch, in partnership with Cascade Networks, a live video feed that will allow viewers to observe these wild birds in their natural environment.
