Ripe Blackberries on the Alsea River

These Wood Ducks know what to do at high tide!

Looks like they found a treasure trove of blackberries.  Too bad they can’t jump higher.  Nobody else is going to eat them.

I had no idea that ducks ate berries but other birds do so why not!

Tailgating Elk

Have you ever heard of the children’s game, Duck-Duck-Goose?

This is Oregon’s version of that game.  It’s called Elk-Elk-Goose.

You get goosed when you move too slow and the one behind you gooses your behind. :-)
