Sauvie Island

On an early summer day we went to Oak Island for a nice hike.

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 were guarding the nest. If there were eaglets, they probably were getting ready to fledge. We didn’t see any.

It’s always an interesting place to visit.
