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.
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.
