Dear Glenn, thanks for letting us know, even though the news is sad. The UBNA Ospreys have many fans (myself among them), ever since the parents began using the nest pole installed by the UW. In the past, these Ospreys have successfully raised two or three chicks each year. I believe one of their offspring, along with a mate, built its own first nest on one of the light poles at the soccer field along 45th this spring. Though their nest did not succeed either, I believe this young pair - and the older UBNA pair too - will try again next year. Here's hoping they will succeed. - Connie, Seattle

> I have sad news for those of you who have been following the osprey nest at the Union Bay Natural Area: The remaining young osprey left the nest some time early on Tuesday morning. Since it hatched somewhere around July 4, it may have been a shade too early and could not fly back up. It remained on the ground until after noon when a volunteer from PAWS came to the rescue. The plan was to have it checked out, then returned today (Wednesday). I later received an email that the young osprey had died in transit. I have been documenting this nest for 3 1/2 months, so this tragedy has hit me hard. I have observed some outrageous things at UBNA that I hope, in time, will rile the local conservation family into action. More on that later. For a photo and more details, I posted this on Facebook:
