Visit to Sauvie Island


On a trip to Sauvie Island to buy some plants, we first stopped at the Oak Island Nature Trail parking area. The 2 1/2 mile trail is a great way to stretch the legs, spot birds and enjoy the wildflowers.

Near the trail is a bald eagle’s nest high in an oak tree.

For the second time this spring, we didn’t see any eagles on or near the nest.

We took pleasure though in the sunshine, little birds, great blue herons, egrets and various wildflowers.
