Bicycle & Birding Trip
April 22, 2003
We began at the Greenway Bridge to bicycle our way through the
Delta Ponds with stops to view great blue herons, osprey, and other birds.
We continued downstream to the Owosso Bridge and crossed to bike upstream
on the west side of the Willamette.
Since it was a cool, cloudy morning, we stopped at my house for tea and cookies.
We then biked over to the bike path on east of I-5 to the cottonwood that has
a heron rookery.
Unfortunately, there is only one nest this year.
We saw a variety of birds and wild flowers while enjoying our bicycle ride.
My thanks to my companions for making this such a delightful trip: Joan Bradley,
Sharon Ritchie, and Carol Waddell.
