On a late July 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.
A month ago the adults were still guarding the nest and there were likely eaglets inside. But, today they appeared to be long gone. We’ll have to wait until next year to see them again.
Still, it’s always an interesting place to visit with some nice summer wildflowers to see.
