Sunday we went to Billy Chinook for the Eagle Watch, hoping that i would be able to get some photos of some birds. An Eagle, a Hawk anything that would fly. Well it was not to be, I think the birds know when i am around so they go hide.I guess they must no i have cats.
Anyway this is what the day started out when we got to Round Butte which is a Private area with homes, We decided to take a drive up there, but the higher we went the foggier it got, also it was freezing. As we left that area and headed over to were the start of the Over Look, this is what we ran into a heard of deer grazing.
Never knew this was even there.. Nice surprise to see this.
And here are some Yome's. Had no idea that is what they are called. You ask "What is a Yome?"
A cross between a yurt and a dome, each fifteen-foot diameter canvas yome is equipped with a futon and a bunk bed, and sleeps four. These really had none of that in it because they were using them to show exhibits in them.
Be sure that you click on all photos for better viewing, this one you can read after it is enlarged
Please click here to read about what this project is all about as it is very interesting to read the cost of this project to save the fish.
Do you know what these claws belong too?
Well this is as close to a photo shoot of a Hawk, Yup he is stuffed, no luck in me catching a live one.LOLAnd here is a couple of the Yome's that they used for exhibits
Be sure to click on this photo to be able to read the wing span
We were not expecting a free lunch as i didn't read that on the information site. So they had these huge wieners on a bun, donuts, coffee, what a nice surprise that was.
Then we stopped at the top of some of the lookouts to see if we could see any eagles or hawks or whatever was flying in the sky, only thing we saw was a couple of geese flying over.
