This morning I counted 7 osprey above Lake Cleone at MacKerricher
State Park. Several attemps were made by osprey to catch a fish.
Finally, one osprey dove into the water and grabbed a fish.
- This morning at 10 am there was an Osprey sitting on a power pole on the south side of East Perkins. This was just across from the houses at 1202-1204 E Perkins and just before you get to the bridge when traveling east. I could not refind it at 11 am.
While Ospreys are not rare, this is the first time I have seen one there in over 20 years. They are usually much further south on the river or much further north up by Lake Mendocino.
- Two Osprey sightings this week above Caspar Beach, both carrying long streamers of seaweed. Sunday, I heard the first chirping of one, less than a mile up Road 409 near their usual site.

- 2/22/17Scott Mercer saw an Osprey from the bluffs of the Point Arena Lighthouse and Craig Tooley photographed one with a fish. So at least one Osprey has returned.Bald Eagle sightings continue, giving us hope a pair might nest in the Gualala River watershed. One has been seen perched in a tall tree behind the Gualala Post Office. I thought I had one spotted last week but when I looked at my photo I found I had photographed a Peregrine Falcon. Still nice, though!JeanneAnchor Bay
