    Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.Isaiah 40:30-31

    Double-crested Cormorant - Action alert: Please help us stop the imminent slaughter of cormorants on the Columbia River - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is planning to slaughter more than 11,000 Double-crested Cormorants — 15 percent of the entire western North America cormorant population. Cormorants will be shot out of the sky with shotguns as they search for food over the Columbia River estuary, or shot with rifles at close range as the birds tend to their nests on East Sand Island. In addition, more than 26,000 Double-crested Cormorant nests will be destroyed by either oiling of eggs or intentional starvation of orphaned nestlings. The killing could start any day! - Photo by Jim Cruce - More Info here: audubonportland.o...

    The intriguing Common Raven has accompanied people around the Northern Hemisphere for centuries, following their wagons, sleds, sleighs, and hunting parties in hopes of a quick meal. Ravens are among the smartest of all birds, gaining a reputation for solving ever more complicated problems invented by ever more creative scientists. These big, sooty birds thrive among humans and in the back of beyond, stretching across the sky on easy, flowing wingbeats and filling the empty spaces with an echoing croak.
