Bald Eagle's Nest

One of the highlights at Willamette Mission State Park this morning was being shown this lone juvenile Bald Eagle atop this huge nest. We spent some interesting time touring trails in the park with Ranger Bonnie in preparation for a Bird Walk for 4th and 5th graders I will be leading this month on the 21st. Although we have hiked and birded a number of trails in the park over the years, today Bonnie showed us a great many more.  I guess we have been guilty of repeating some of the same old routes.  Today our sense of exploring definitely was piqued and will we be expanding the trails we take for birding.  


  1. I admire your volunteerism. You deserve the unexpected payoffs like this sighting! Nice.
