Today we did a pre-Super Bowl outing to Contra Loma R. P. where we enjoyed periods of light rain, bright sunshine and some spectacular rainbows.
Merlin: Along the East Side Dr., we had very good views of a male Merlin.
Tricolored Blackbird: Near the boat ramp we spotted several in a mixed flock of blackbirds.
Osprey: There were two Ospreys searching the reservoir for recently-planted trout.
Burrowing Owl: We also spotted this bird along the East Side Drive.
American White Pelican: We counted eight on the reservoir.
