Bird Watching on Lint Slough – Waldport, Oregon

There are always some kind of birds on Lint Slough; on Hwy 34 as you enter Waldport from the west.

The mallards are preening and might be looking for a nesting site for the spring?

Apparently there was a Great Blue Heron rally on this day.   I didn’t get the memo.   I guess because I don’t get the Great Blue Heron newsletter?

We counted about 18 heron!  My ODFW-buddy says they nest in trees though.  So maybe they are just preening and resting here after lunch?

Maybe Lint Slough is Waldport’s all-you-can-eat buffet for birds?
