Actions & Comments

On our way to conduct a NOAA marine debris survey at the north end of Cove Beach, we saw a peregrine falcon cruise by, an adult bald eagle on the eagle tree, and a sea lion. While the birds were treats to see, the sea lion unfortunately was ill. Perhaps it had leptospirosis which has been reported all along the Oregon coast. The sea lion (female perhaps because of size) had hauled out on the sand, avoiding the incoming waves as much as possible. Two other people were on the beach but luckily they had their dog on leash. We reported the sea lion situation to Jim Rice with the marine mammal stranding network.
