Saturday was the Audubon Society's annual Raptor Road Trip on Sauvie Island - an event we have been eagerly anticipating all year. It did not disappoint - the weather was gorgeous and we managed to spot several large birds of prey and their nests throughout the day.
Two immature bald eagles:
Another one in action:
A sharp shinned hawk:
A red tailed hawk:
And Elliot's highlight of the day - finding an owl pellet on the ground. Once he started looking he found about twenty. Guess what we're doing this afternoon?
