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?
2 squirrels fighting above walkway; a tuft of fur fell at my feet.
thought this was a wasp until i looked closer. amazing!
Planted tree, leaves smell like grapefruit
It clearly had a white stripe on its back.
The skunk is in the center of the photograph.
Weird assortment of non natives on the Bart side of the fence, bunch of scrappy self starters on the amtrak side.
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.
