The skies above Mendocino Coast’s Noyo Harbor are flitting with seabirds. A nesting pair of Osprey, the legendary, fish-eating sea hawk, has welcomed three hatchlings into the world and Fort Bragg resident Judy Valadao caught a glimpse of them emerging from the nest.

Valadao said, “We were very surprised as they exposed themselves one at a time until there were three. Be sure to bring binoculars if you want to see them as they await the male’s return to the nest with a fish.”

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
