Foggy Bay Birding

Sarah and I spent a soggy Weekend Before Solstice at Pacific City. On Saturday, we conducted out monthly bird survey of Bob Straub State Park, then drove north to Netarts Bay.

We had hoped to find a Snowy Owl that has set up shop near the end of a spit.

Unfortunately, the bay was socked-in by fog. There was no owl to be seen, but we did find a Peregrine Falcon and many diving birds. Maybe next month.

Wow, since you mention a snowy and peregrine, check out the amazing interspecies duel at NYSt's Conservationist Magazine http://www.dec.ny.gov/pubs/60015.html "Nature red in tooth and claw" indeed!
