 Have to say it.....never, would I have believed that one day we'd be able to look out on the estuary and see a herd of elk grazing!  I think I mentioned in my last post that people had been reporting seeing them.  Well tonight was my turn.

there they are.  In total, there were 7.  3 males, 3 females and a young one.

This shows their location from the road, and on the estuary itself....seeing them tonight was just the icing on the cake for a spectacular fall day that started out ....

with a misty sort of morning.....if this picture doesn't just scream 'Chehalis Estuary', I don't know what would, with a Heron siloutted on the shore, a bunch of Canada Geese swimming past and a Bald Eagle photobombing the whole thing.

 after lunch, it was a walk over at Harrison Bay with a perfectly calm picturesque scene...

another Great Blue Heron over here.  In fact there were all kinds of birds....

including a Hairy Woodpecker.  Must have been at least a half dozen Northern Flicker although none cooperated for a picture.

all kinds of American Robin eating everything they can find.  In this case, the berries of a Virginia Creeper.

Dark Eyed Junco were everywhere!  Also a number of Song Sparrows and Steller's Jay.

all in all it was just a spectacular early fall day!
