Oak Island Eagles


Oak Island is open again for hiking.

Located nearby on Sauvie Island, it’s a grand place to spot songbirds.

Even better, it has a bald eagle’s nest high in an oak tree near the trail.

The adults are currently sitting on the eggs. Soon there will be little eaglets to see.

I will return often until the little ones have fledged and left the nest.
