We are the new species in the area. I have seen Pelicans and wild life including pheasants on or close to the beach for over thirty five years. Ducks and geese by the tens of thousands. Hawks and osprey, eagles of two varieties, falcons, owl’s n finches. It is a long list.
Although I live out of town, I see it all from time to time. Including- Elk, deer, bear, coyote, bob cat, and even a mountain lion walking the road in to the house one evening a few years back. Remember - This is Oregon
We are trespassing - with all of our sprawl.
