Oregon Birds & Critters

I am linking up with Fiona's Green Day  and Camera Critters

Not much happening here at home on the weekends. I am hoping the rain holds off on Saturday so I can go out and play. So,  I am doing another Oregon post to show some more birds and a few ELK we saw at the Ecola State Park in Cannon Beach, Oregon.

Ecola State Park Elk.



The view of the beach from the Ecola State Park overlook.





A few Cormorants on the rock, a view from the Ecola State Park.

A few more elk near the parking lot at Ecola State Park, Oregon.


Brown Pelicans on the rock, also seen from the Ecola State park overlook.

Momma elk and baby.


A group of elk near the parking lot at the Ecola State Park.


I love the Oregon coastline and the huge trees.

I hope you enjoyed my Oregon birds and elk. The Ecola Elk herd was a cool sighting and reminded me of my trip to Yellowstone, the elk at Yellowstone were huge. I love seeing the wildlife and the birds and the beautiful coastal scenery. I hope you enjoyed my post, I wish everyone a happy weekend.

I didn't realize there were elk there-how neat. I'm getting excited to go there. I read the view from there was spectacular...you can see Haystack rock.
Lovely photos, Eileen!

Beautiful coastline and lots of wildlife! I’ve been familiar with so many deer roaming in Nara Park area, Japan, but I’ve never seen elks in person. They are such huge deer, and male with magnificent antlers. Thanks for sharing.

That wild Oregon coastline doesn't look at all like I imagined Eileen and what happened to your ususal sunny skies? never mind, you got great shots and close-up views of the Elks. Hope your weather improves for the weekend - it's raining again here just now but better soon I hope.

Gorgeous pix! We were on a much calmer, less picturesque stretch of the coast last week beach -- but it wasgeat to walk and meditate. (I might have to borrow you coast pictures (just kidding of course) but yours are better!
