Salmonberries are the first to ripen. They are SO yummy! And all the birds know it…as do the deer and bear and anything else with tastebuds. I nabbed one yesterday that was solid red. Still a little tart but they might be gone if I wait for the sweetest ones. And no, Mom L, it didn’t have a worm in it – I looked – twice.
I’m glad the osprey don’t like berries. 🙂 They’ve been dining at the seafood buffet table lately. We’ve seen some sore-back steelhead this week.
Here’s a video of the osprey diving. These guys are fast! It’s hard to zoom in far enough to see them and still be able to track them. I had to stand back on the deck so he wouldn’t see me so the video is chopped by deck posts and flower pots too. But, hey, it’s a splash all the same!
He missed his fish. 😦
