I’d say these were Common Ringed Plovers but my Audubon bird book says those don’t come to the Oregon Coast.  So they must be the Semipalmated Plover.

OOoo Cool!  Look, the sunset colors are reflecting through the jellyfish. 🙂

Showers on the Central Oregon Coast

Red in the morning…

I woke up early (not on purpose) and hoped to catch a moonset; based on last night’s pretty moonrise.  But the ‘old man’ was hiding behind the clouds.

Haven’t seen many jellies on the beach this year – and nothing since last fall.  There was one, lone, sea nettle this morning.

The campground bunnies were scarce during the storms but we’ve seen them quite frequently lately.  These brush rabbits are common on the Oregon coast.
