Cowlitz PUD's Osprey Have Three Eggs (Photo)
Cowlitz PUD Live Osprey Cam
In early March 2016, Cowlitz PUD, in partnership with Cascade Networks, launched a live-feed osprey camera. The camera focuses on a platform Cowlitz PUD built 15 years ago near a utility pole to provide a safe nesting alternative. Osprey have nested on this platform ever since and each year return to their summer home in Cowlitz County.
The osprey returned from their winter home on March 25th and began mating and nest preparation on March 30th. We celebrated the ospreys' return by holding a naming contest, and we are pleased to announce that Cowlitz PUD Osprey Cam Facebook followers chose Electra and Watt-Sun.
Electra laid three eggs between April 18th and April 24th. Together, Electra and Watt-Sun will incubate their eggs for 36 to 42 days. If all goes well, the first egg should hatch around May 26th. The second egg should hatch on May 29th and the third on June 1st.
