After a couple of days of rain and with no let up in sight, decided to try to get down to the estuary to see how the water levels were doing....
and they were definitely rising....compare this to the photo taken the other day!
and actually made it to the log bay...note that bottom log out there is just about completely submerged. Not a lot of bird activity around although I did notice an Osprey flying over.
and there was a collection of diving ducks, Common Merganser, Bufflehead and Common Golden-eye in this spot.
the flowers on the native Black Twin berry bushes were coming out, I've mentioned before how birds love the shiny black berries this shrub produces.
Lots of Ruby-crowned Kinglets in the bushes along with some chickadees and hummingbirds.
