Yesterday, Jeanette and I decided to take advantage of a full day of sunshine by making a return trip to the coast to the Alder Island Nature Trail at the Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Though biting cold, we had bright sunshine. You can see our complete eBird observation list with photos here. One of the most entertaining things we saw was this Red-necked Grebe swallowing a fish. It looked like a difficult proposition, but judging by the huge lump at the base of its throat, which was taken a minute later, it was successful.
