The heronry at Hiram M. Chittenden (Ballard) Locks (at Commodore Park, south side) is viewable from an elevated position from across the way at Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden (north side). Haven’t been yet this year, but in the past the views were great.

Anyone aware of another heronry with similar visibility? There's a large heronry at Marymoor which is amazing to visit, but in terms of visibility there are lots of branches in the way of most of the nests, and not possible to get a clean background.
