Ospreys have returned to the Mendonoma Coast and Paul Brewer photographed one of the first ones to arrive

Spring is really here when Ospreys return. The first Osprey was sighted several weeks ago and more have followed recently. Paul Brewer photographed one of the first to arrive near his home in Gualala and has kindly allowed me to share his photo with you here.

There are two active nests on our road and they are both in the process of being rebuilt and generally spiffed up. We can see one of the nests through our scope. Yesterday, while I watched, I saw the male Osprey fly in, land on top of the female who was sitting on the edge of the nest and mate. Wow, I'm a voyeur!

It is a joy to live where Ospreys choose to nest.
