More pics of South Whidbey State Park

We are still learning the park, there are still too many trails we have not walked yet, and we have been here for over a month, that is just sad.

While there are plenty of birds to hear, seeing them is another story. We see plenty of American Robins and Dark-eyed Juncos with some Spotted Towhees but everything else is hearing more then seeing.

We do have a Downy Woodpecker nest near a trail and really close to a bench, it’s pretty nice to sit there while the adults fly in and out and the hatchlings chirp and chirp. We also see some Osprey every so often, but as with Fort Flagler, there is just too many tree’s to block the birds from view.

Stupid trees are ruining nature.

Yesterday we also saw a Turkey Vulture with 4 Osprey circling over the beach area, there was also a Raven chasing one of the Osprey’s.

There are plenty of rabbits and deer here. Pauline and I saw the Doe with her 2 Fawn that I saw a week or so ago yesterday, one of the Park Aides also got to see them, it’s always cool sharing a nature moment with others.


About ToRn

Hi there! I am ToRn. I'm a "fortysomething" Dude who is ready for a new life style. The current one has become too boring and too predictable. So why not shake things up and get rid of everything we own and leave everything we know and move into a small box on wheels with the Big Red Wife and and our 2 cat's who could quite possibly be evil? I was born and raised in Indiana and spent part of Summer's in Minnesota. I lived 3 years in Washington and 3.5 year's in Florida and for the past 5+ years we have lived in the great state of Oregon! Which I now consider my home state. I have been to 39 State's as far, with all intention to visit all 50, as well as any and every National Park, Forrest and whatever else there is marked on a map between me and where I am going. Green is my favorite color.
