today was such a beautiful day. we spent this afternoon walking around part of a nature preserve on sauvie island. we saw and heard many different animals. the highlight by far was seeing a bald eagle nest with the head of the mother eagle poking out the top.  some nasty starlings were tormenting the eagles… it was kind of stressful.

 

here is a field recording of the area where we watched the eagle’s nest from. i think you can hear some baby eagles chirping away throughout.
