The way the weather has been around here lately, any break in the rain is a reason to celebrate. People flock to the Willamette River, and so do the birds.
The heron rookery was still a bit quiet compared to a couple of weeks ago.
The herons are still around though and spending more time on the beach below.
A Bald Eagle was hiding and taking a look from the top of a tall Douglas Fir tree, possibly watching…
…the cormorants flying back and forth.
All in all, a fine day on the river.
