Michelle and I took a quick trip over to Tillamook and surrounding areas this week. It was, as always, a fun trip and we always see some great birds (for us at least).
The weather didn't cooperate too much but there were some breaks from the rain storms and we tried to take advantage of them as much as we could. Here are some photos from the trip and we are already planning our next trip to the coast. There is a list of all the birds we identified at the end of the post.
A Western Gull sits atop a post at the Memaloose boat ramp. We were on our way to the Bayocean spit when we decided to swing into the boat ramp parking lot.
We were really glad we stopped! This is a Horned Grebe in breeding plumage just off of the dock.
A small flock of Black Turnstones. This is the only photo we got but they are another life list bird for us!
Another great find for us was this Red-Breasted Merganser. Yet another life lister.
Birds we identified (51 species):
