Among the interesting places hosting Osprey nests is a very tall light pole tucked in the partially wooded interchange complex of Interstate 205 and Washington Hwy 14 in Vancouver. The nest is in the NE quadrant of the interchange about 1/4 mile from where the two highways cross. There is NO safe place on the freeways to observe the nest (you need to be a passenger in a car to see it) but there may be place in the neighborhood just to the north of Hwy 14 and East of Hwy 205. There have been birds on the nest for at least 2 weeks now. I don't know how the birds tolerate the very bright lights illuminating the interchange shining directly beneath them and all around them, but they do.

Good freeway birding!
