Description

All is not lost! So interesting that I just posted the other day that one of these Osprey (I believe the one on the left) has been alone for many weeks now. As I drove to work, I saw that there were, in fact, two Osprey sharing this nest. And the one on the left was busy delivering more sticks for the nest while I watched. So, hopefully this pair will have a successful clutch.

Description

I saw a Lewis' Woodpecker in this same spot the other day, but didn't have a chance to pull over in time to photograph it. So glad I left for work early this morning! I had a chance to watch this family for a few minutes.

There were between 3-4 Lewis' in the immediate area. The atmospheric conditions (smoky from the Tamarack and Dixie Fires) didn't make for the best lighting, but this family was active around me so it was hard to keep track of whether or not I was counting more bird more than once.

Anyway, I'm not sure if they're just out and about learning to fly or if they're preparing to move out of the area (by making their way over to this side of Tahoe Mountain).

Not the greatest photos ever, but I thought it fun to watch this Black-headed Grosbeak get checked out by a couple of juvenile Robins (one pictured in second photo).

Description

There was a mating pair of Osprey (as there is every year at this specific location) early in the season. But this one has been alone for weeks now. And, this nest is actually a second site (very close to the original nest). Kind of sad as I've grown familiar with seeing a family of three every summer interacting at this location at about this time.

I should've made the effort to get a better photo right where I was at. Instead, I tried to get closer and by the time I did, this bird was gone. I'm open to any guesses.

Perched near an logjam and oxbow in the river. Super low, as it's only a few feet from the water's surface.
