The Oak Island Wildlife Area was my destination on a hot mid-spring day. The island is located in the middle of Sauvie Island about 15 crow-flying miles northwest of home. A three-mile trail meanders around the northern perimeter of the island for the most part.
A few camas lilies were in bloom, darlings of all the pollen collectors in the neighborhood. The highlight of the outing was watching a bald eagle on its nest with the other adult riding the thermals above. They return to the same place year after year.
As usual, the hike made for a nice outing on a pleasant spring day.
