A few photos from a recent trip to the north coast of Oregon...

At Ecola State Park... Sea stacks that have been pounded by surf for countless thousands of years.

The beach at Sunset Beach State Park is wide and sandy - perfect habitat for foraging Sanderlings.

We had no idea this Osprey was perched overhead until it let out with a loud "kee, kee, kee."

The beach at Fort Stevens - very close to the mouth of the Columbia River and the border of Washington and Oregon.

Surfbirds like rocky beaches at low tide, where they can probe heaps of exposed kelp for food.

Black Turnstones use very strong bills to pry barnacles off rocks. Once pried off, the inside of the barnacle can be easily consumed.

This Red-throated Loon is a cousin of the Common Loons we see in the eastern USA. It is losing its breeding plumage, but some red still shows on the throat.
