Bald Eagles

Oak Island is open again for the season. On a warm and sunny day, I hiked around the Island enjoying the first day without rain for quite awhile.

I turned around and hiked back around the Island 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.
