Spent part of the afternoon up at Cape Meares looking for the Black Oystercatcher and their nests. My landlord invited me to go with her - she is a spotter and it was way kewl. Saw two peregrine falcons flying overhead (they also have nests on the cape). Allison left me a spare set of binoculars in case I want to help spot when she is not out here.
We saw two pair of the oystercatchers but did not spot their nests. Cape Meares has two spotting platforms off the parking lot and we were spotting from the northern platform. Way kewl. Next time I go up, I'm bringing the camera. Forking gorgeous!
