Oregon birds & critters.

I am linking up with Camera Critters  and Scenic Sunday

Sorry, I have not even started sharing all my Oregon coast photos and you are probably sick of seeing my trip pic's. I only shared the first three days and we went to the coast for 4 more days. So many photos to go thru.


In this mosaic I have the osprey in flight, Canada Geese near the river, windsailing, squirrel, Lewis's dog Seaman , another Swainson's Thrush, goats on the trail and Little Crater lake.

These are some more shots from the Columbia River and our hikes to Timothy lake and to the Little Crater lake.


I love these sculptures of Sacagawea and Lewis's dog Seaman. While visiting Oregon we saw many references to the famous explorers Lewis & Clark. Seaman the Newfoundland was acquired by Lewis for $20.


Another one of the Swainson's Thrushes I was hearing a lot of them everywhere.

Neat shot of the sailing club?

This is the first time we came across people walking their goats on the trail. It seems Oregon is very dog friendly too. I thought of my lonely Goldie Girl at home, when we saw dogs everywhere we went. Restaurants and hotels had water bowls set up outside their entrances.

I had another incentive to visit Little Crater lake, I was told at the visitor center that there was a Sandhill Crane family seen in the marshy area. I would have loved to see the crane chicks. The grasses were tall and if the cranes were there they were hidden well.

Hubby and I loved this Little Crater lake, the water is SO BLUE. There was a sign saying the water was very cold, while we were there a young man dove in on a bet with his friends.


To see more cute and beautiful critters please visit: Camera Critters

Thanks to Misty Dawn the host of Camera Critters and thanks to Aisha the host of Scenic Sunday.


I hope you enjoyed my post, thanks for stopping by I appreciate the visit and the comments. I wish everyone a safe and HAPPY weekend.

The colors of that little lake are pretty. Why do young men always do silly things on bets?
:D

I absolutely did enjoy your post! Each and every picture a delight! I must say, I had a little laugh over the thought of people walking their goats! I love the mosaic, it's so fun to see all the pictures together like that. The water must have REALLY been cold if there was a posted sign! It's pretty blue color is inviting, but the cold would have kept me dry!
