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!

  1. The bears just might eat them. Water really won’t deter them if they want them bad enough. I have seen bears trudge right through blackberry brambles. The thorns didn’t seem to bother Mama bear at all.
