It was foggy on our third morning in Lincoln City, OR. Until late yesterday morning, we still hadn’t found any shore birds until we happened across a few Least Sandpipers on the side of the road along the Siletz River. It is puzzling and a little alarming to find virtually no birds here. We should be seeing a huge number of migrating shore birds. Even the water fowl and gulls are scarce. Where are the birds? In the mean time, we’re still finding interesting photographic subjects, like this fir growing out of the top of a small intertidal rock in Siletz Bay. The fog persisted in patches throughout the day.
