Oak Island is open again for the season. On a warm and sunny day, we hiked around the Island.

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.

We didn’t see any eagles on the nest but saw several flying nearby. Soon the adults will be sitting on the eggs.

To our delight we spotted several white pelicans. And, we saw firsthand the prey/predator relationship between a scrub jay and a garter snake.
