I saw this osprey nest empty last year when I walked across the Zampa (Carquinez) bridge in Vallejo. When I walked the bridge again a few days ago, 3 ospreys were waiting for food as mom flew around. Looks like they are getting ready to leave the nest.
I hope you continue to inspire others about wildlife and pets during your retirement. I’ve enjoyed reading your column and will miss it.

Ospreys are beautiful, fish-hunting birds of prey. As you can see, they like to build their nests on high spots, even if they are in the middle of humans … as long as there is a nearby place to fish. These are beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing them! /Gary
