Sunday we woke at the crack of dawn and got out to Jackson Bottoms Wetlands at 7am. It was a beautiful sunny morning. Mosquitoes were not as bad at Ridgefield, but they were present. Seems this year they are bad everywhere. I guess we can blame that on the extra wet spring.
Douglas Spirea in bloom.
What is this? I flipped through my book, but didn't see it.
Cedar Waxwings were going for the berries in the trees.
At the gazebo this Barn Swallow was feeding four babies.
Look at the fluff on their heads!
A Robin was sitting on eggs a couple of feet away.
She tolerated me for a minute, then gave me THIS look. I know that look. I moved on.
A Green Heron was hanging out by Pintail Pond, then flew to this perch.
We decided to go to Killin Wetland next.
On the way we stopped and photographed some cows enjoying the sunny morning. As it turned out we went to Killin Wetlands, Vernonia, Scappoose, and ended on Sauvie Island. Stay tuned for more of our adventures....
