Oaks Bottom, February 2024

As always, there was an impressive variety of wildlife along the trail. I saw a stand of more than 20 Great Blue Herons in the wetlands, more than I had ever seen in one place before. Some online research pointed out a heron rookery on Ross Island, which is just offshore from Oaks Bottom in the Willamette. Other highlights included Kingfishers and Cedar Waxwings, and an eagle pair calling out across the wetlands from a tall tree.
