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.

  1. Nature is amazing. Bald eagles, thank god we saved them.

  2. The first picture, of the bald eagle landing, is truly remarkable. I say that objectively.
