Evening on the Willamette

Earlier in the week, Sarah and I were invited to join a Saturday evening Sternwheeler cruise along the Willamette River and serve as assistant naturalists (in other words, birdwatch and share our observations with others). I have not had the chance spent as much time on this river as I would like, so I was happy to accept the invitation.

Here are some scenes from the cruise:

Portland's downtown skyline and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry's submarine

Birding off the bow

Ross Island's lagoon, full of waterskiers having way too much fun

Bald Eagle on Ross Island

Osprey nest on tower near Oaks Bottom

Cozy house boats on the river

Canada Goose flock

Fancy waterfront condos
