213. Nature

Just South of Lincoln City (where we stayed) is another coastal town called Newport.   Yaquina Head’s Natural area is located just outside of Newport and shows off tons of birds and animals in their natural habitat.  I was amazed by the number of Murres (I thought they looked like penguins) that show up in this area to nest every year.  I could have watched these birds all day, but the boy’s were very anxious to move on!  At least I got a few (hundred) pics.  lol

 

Here are a few that are nesting….how cool is that?
