Oak Island is open again for the season. On an early June sunny day, we hiked around the Island.

Spotted Towhee

Located nearby on Sauvie Island, Oak Island is a grand place to spot songbirds and wildflowers.

We enjoyed seeing a couple of bunnies, and a young spotted towhee. I’m always amazed at their bright, orange eyes.

The wildflowers were beginning to bloom, throwing some sparkling colors along the trail.

Always a nice place to visit.
