> I know I express a sentiment felt by many coast residents when I say
> "Thank You!" to everyone who has put plans to come to the coast to bird (or
> whatever) on hold recently. I never imagined that a tiny virus could
> possibly constrain even my own local wanderings, but as others have
> thoughtfully noted here, having 200+ coronavirus cases roll into town
> overnight, literally just down the hill from where I live on Yaquina Bay,
> is something that definitely gives serious pause. Consideration of this
> situation by visitors (evidenced by wearing masks when they do come) is
> much appreciated.
>
>
> So as "Consolation Prize" to those who have had to put off their next
> visit to the coast for a post-pandemic day, here's a short new video from
> the coast that might help ease the anguish of waiting. It's not totally
> birds, but opens with a pair of talking eagles and ends with a pretty cool
> owl, and those who enjoy seeing the other varieties of "Beauty & Nature" on
> the wintertime coast will likely appreciate it, too:
