A Paddle At Jenner With Lots of Seals and Birds

Tuesday July 21, 2020 Jenner CA.

Paddle day

Today seemed like a good day to go for a paddle so I headed on down to Jenner by the ocean and put my boat into the river.

I decided to head on down towards the river’s mouth into the ocean up ahead a bit. There was high fog but nice.river1

 

Something off to  my left caught my eye so I went over to have a look. Some turkey vultures were eating something on the ground.vultures2

 

Not much left of a flattened deer.vulture3

 

There were some brown pelicans in the water that I went by.pelicans4

 

I was headed to the mouth up ahead a bit.mouth5

 

I could see these pelicans on shore by Hay Stack Rockpelicans6

 

The mouth was open and these seals were resting on the sand there.seals7

 

There were lots of critters on the sandy beach by  the mouth.critters8

I stayed down by the mouth for a good while then headed on back up the river going by the jetty on the way.jetty11

 

About a mile up river looked like this as I paddled along slowly.river13

 

This great blue heron was resting in this spot and flew off with a squawk as I passed.heron14

 

On the way in I passed by this cormorants and merganser ducks resting on the gravel.birds15

 

And almost back I passed by this egret preening.egret14

 

I made it back to the boat ramp and loaded my boat and went on home.

I was tired out so only got some chair hopping done and didn’t get around to writing my blog for the day so this is catch up.

Nice day at the river.
