The osprey are using the nest at Waldport High School again this year.
A cashier at Ray’s Market seemed to think there are young ones ready to fledge. I thought it’s too early though. We could see one bird on the nest and then another flew in. You can make out two in this photo. But we’re not sure if it’s 2 adults or if the one on the nest is a young one.
I can’t wait to see the elk calves! I’m sure it will be another couple weeks before they venture down the mountain. But I like this guy’s new antlers!
I haven’t seen this many Hooded Mergansers on this part of the Alsea River. They were doing some fishing this morning.
Whoa! No wonder there’s a whole flock! How is he going to eat that huge crawdad?
