    This windy morning (Sat, July 11), during a walk along the Carquinez 
    Strait Overlook Loop Trail at Carquinez Strait RS (Crockett end of 
    the park), we had a few interesting sightings, nothing stupendous.
    
    New birds for us for this location were a Lark Sparrow and 2 
    Ash-throated Flycatchers.
    
    We also saw an Osprey, which I haven't seen here in over 10 
    years.  He caught a fish and headed up the strait towards Martinez 
    with it.  Anyone know of an Osprey nest in the Martinez area?
    
    Other fun birds included 3 Western Bluebirds (this has always been a 
    fairly reliable spot for bluebirds) and a Wrentit teed up singing.
    
    Good birding,
