Newport (August) and Westmoreland/Crystal Springs.

I just found some photos I took in Newport, OR in August...  I never actually ID'd the birds until just now- forgot I had even taken them...


Black Turnstones!  So cool!  I remember seeing them right near the dock where the sea lions are...


Oh and my friends and I went whale-watching and I didn't post photos of that either!   We did one of those tours from Depoe Bay.


I believe it's a California Gray Whale.


Outside the Oregon Coast Aquarium were some birds in the mudflats... Some kind of blackbird?

Weird little baldy!

Also.... yesterday I hit up both Westmoreland Park and Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden... I'll just post a few of my favorite photos...

Bad hair day?


Mother Goose?

So handsome!

  1. Your unidentified birds in the mudflats might be European Starling, Jen.
