  • 7/16/17 Anchor Bay Hi All, “Our” Osprey chick fledged today. I think another Osprey chick fledged yesterday from a nest I can’t see, but can often hear the female calling. There were some beginning flying lessons late yesterday afternoon, with a juvenile Osprey flying lower than the adults fly. I love it that the fledglings come back to the nest to eat and rest. It’s a...

  • 7/7/17 Wow, that’s a cool date! I wanted to let you know that a third Peregrine Falcon nest was found here on the south coast. Two chicks in the nest and they look to be between three and four weeks old, according to the fellow who sent me photographs. The other two nests with chicks have fledged, four from one and two from the other. The Peregrines have been feasting on WEGU...

  • 6/9/17 Hi All, The two pairs of Peregrine Falcons returned to the same spot they nested last year. One nest has two chicks and the other has four (!). Here’s my recent post with photos and a video Craig Tooley took of one parent feeding the two chicks. http://www.mendonomasightings.com/2017/06/09/two-active-peregrine-falcon-nests-again-this-year/ One of the mature Bald Eagles...

  • 5/9/17 Gualala Hi All, The two mature Bald Eagles continue here in Gualala. I received photos of the two yesterday. They are often seen from the Gualala Bluff Trail, either on snags or on the sandbar. I’m sending you a recent blog post of mine with the two eagles, plus an immature that appeared on a tree in Gualala (bluff side). I have also received a report of an active Bald...

  • 4/15/17 Gualala I just had a bald eagle sighting of my own around 11 am this morning. From the Gualala Bluff Trail behind Trink’s restaurant, Rick and I (and a visiting friend), were watching two gray whales quite close in by the mouth of the Gualala River. Then a mature bald eagle flew by, heading up river – very exciting! This morning Paul Brewer photographed a immature bald...

I also had a report of a single sandhill crane over Gualala flying north late Friday, the Friday before Easter, afternoon. No photo. Sorry for the late report, I have been out of town.

  • Monday, April 10, 2017 This sighting comes from Scott Mercer. He is the whale expert counting gray whales with his wife, Tree, on the bluffs by the Point Arena Lighthouse.He knows his wildlife. Other sightings include falcons passing back and forth from east to west and back, an osprey that hovers over the ocean, and on Monday, two gannets flew right over us headed north. I know...

  • Hi All, Here is the photo of the 3+ year old Bald Eagle seen multiple times in Gualala. If you are down here, the eagle seems to like perching in the snag shown in the photo. If you know Trinks and/or the Seacliff Center, you can go out towards the Gualala Bluff Trail and see this snag. It’s to the north of Trinks, near the mouth of the Gualala River. I hope it’s okay to share...

  • 3/9/17 Mel Smith reported on Saturday, March 4th, despite the stormy weather, two Violet-green swallows returned to his place in Point Arena. He has had them successfully nest there. He also saw a pair of Red Crossbills at his birdbath. We have a three+ year old Bald Eagle in the Gualala area for several months now. I have a recent photo which I’ll share soon – it appears in...

  • 2/22/17 Scott 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...
