Report Details

Visitors in the neighborhood reported a bird entangled in fishing line with a big hook embedded in its shoulder. They managed to remove most of the line but couldn't remove the hook. Brave souls for sure - they sustained some painful jabs. Forewarned, I took gloves and a towel, wrapped the bird - a cormorant - carried it back home where it went into a box. The Wildlife Center of the North Coast arranged a rendezvous for me with a volunteer rehabber. Hopefully the bird will make it. Thanks to all the folks who helped. And thanks to the rehabbers, their work is just beginning. Nov 10 follow-up: the bird didn't survive.

Mile 306

January 19, 2024

We walked the mile on a clear, chilly afternoon. We picked up trash--one full bag. We found a little eel, the same color as brown rockweed! We saw sea foam blowing on the sand. We found a small skull bone. We found a scientific measuring device planted in the cobble with a float saying that it was the property of OSU.

These observations were made over the last 3 months walking the beach at different times of day but not keeping a record which I will try to start.
