Sunday January 11, 2015 Jenner CA.
It was a bit chilly as I arrived at Jenner this morning. It was overcast and no sun, but the wind was down, so I hoped things would improve and they did.
A bald eagle
I headed up the side of the island noticing a lot of bird type stuff on the water and when I got to this log, I found where an eagle had likely used this log for a table to consume some kind of bird. Looked like a dinner table to me.
As I was looking at that, the eagle in the tree took off and flew over my head on up the river and out of sight near eagle’s landing. Maybe it landed at eagle’s landing?
I made my way up that way taking my time and stopping along the way as the day was warming and the overcast was starting to lift a bit.
Two at eagle’s landing
As I approached eagle’s landing I looked up in the big trees to see if there was an eagle up there and there was. I was getting it’s picture when I noticed another eagle up there too.
The Paddy’s rock eagle
I watched the eagle fly off Paddy’s rock and fly up onto the grassy hillside and land near the ridge top.
Eagle is back in the tree
Seagulls and huge bubbles
I left them blowing bubbles and headed down towards the river’s mouth area.
Open river mouth
It was high tide as I approached the open river’s mouth. High tide meant I could get into the mouth without being swept out into the ocean as water was coming into the river as the tide rose.
Hard times for seagulls
I noticed this seagull sitting in the rocks near where I was sitting in my boat. At first, I thought it was the seagull I saw the other day up the river with the broken wing. But then I realized the other birds right wing was broken and this one’s left wing is broken.
I sat at that spot for quite some time. The sea lions went by a few times hunting just inside the mouth.
Still making bubbles
The day was getting on, so I started heading in for the day. When I got back near Penny Island, the huge bubbles were still flying. The breeze had changed direction and now the bubbles were blowing right towards the boat ramp.
Although the ones that ran into me broke on my back.
Some of those bubbles made it clear over to the boat ramp. They were being launched from the beach at the ocean over half a mile away.
I pulled my boat out of the water and went on home for the day and that was it for another nice day.
