The sandbar east of the Alsea Bay Bridge is a nursery for Harbor Seals this month. The eagles and buzzards hang around a lot this time of year.
Pups nurse for 4 weeks on mom’s rich milk.
Pups learn their mothers voice. Nap time is snuggle time.
Seal puppy kisses 🙂
The pups lose their umbilical cord after about a week. You can see this one’s bellybutton scar.
Here’s a cute video of mom and pup swimming and playing in the Alsea Bay.
