Osprey at Lake Merritt

Hilary Powers

This afternoon, an Osprey was perched in the bare patch in the thick trees on the west side of the near island. Sat for a while, rose up and circled the lake, came back. This was about an hour ago; dunno if he's there still....

Best viewing from the cage end of the boat house parking lot.

Only my second sighting of an Osprey at the lake, ever.
