"Blind Slough, Oregon ... January 13, 2008"
The Trip:    Sunny winter day ... went looking for the Arctic Loon reported there ... SUCCESS !!!!!!!!!!!

Blind Slough:    Blind Slough, Oregon, located approximately 15 miles east of Astoria, winds itself along the floodplain on the south side of the Columbia River. The concrete bridge across the Slough is a great place to photograph diving birds such as the Western Grebe, Red-throated Loon, and Double-crested Cormorant. During the winter of 2007-2008 an Arctic Loon hung out. Apparently the fishing was good.
