Oak Island is open again for the season. On a warm but overcast day, we hiked around the Island until running into high water.
Then we turned around and hiked back to the same spot in the other direction before returning to the trailhead. It was a very pleasant 4 1/2 mile outing.
Located nearby on Sauvie Island, Oak Island is a grand place to spot songbirds and wildflowers.
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.
As every year, I will return often until the little ones have fledged and left the nest.
