Description

This female? osprey was hovering over the man-made lake at Berkeley Aquatic Park and diving half-way down to the lake then rising back up. Repeated this pattern several times, but didn't catch any fish.

I was really surprised to see an osprey here. Past data shows they are not commonly recorded at this area. Has anyone else seen them here? How often?

Not sure if it was a California newt or a rough skinned. There is a California newt underneath it though. I'm betting it is a rough skinned by the color of its back.
