Hi tweets!

Father's Day surprise trip was to the Oregon coast this weekend. It was hard at first when I crossed the border... realizing that the birds I was going to see wouldn't "count", maybe, but just in general, I really love our state. Is there enough time to really see all of it?

I tried to pretend that Oregon was just like another county in Washington... But walking to the lighthouse at Cape Meares I heard my first Wrentit and knew I was on the other side of the river. I didn't get to see one until Sunday morning. Very cute birds, kinda funky calls, and hysterical that they won't make the trip over the river.

My buddy Pete messaged me to point out that these birds typically stay within 500 yards of the nest where they hatched. Wow...maybe I'm not the only one who loves home! Amazing that these birds and I ever crossed paths!

The Garibaldi area was great. It was fun especially to see Common Murres in the thousands and often quite close.

Happy birding!
