A cool, slightly breezy (10 mph N) day, with clear skies and 50 F air, to match the water.
Macoma clams washed up on the beach, and in the surf. They seemed to be mostly alive, although sea gulls were trying to put them out of their misery. I would guess they got washed out of the sand by wave action. The can burrow, but they're pretty slow, especially in 50 F water.
eagle soars far over the trees on top of the cliff. It's not yet in adult colors, as they stay in a sequence of juvenile colors for three years.
Our main foliage trees, Tulip Poplars and various oaks, are just starting get leaves. The next 2-3 weeks should bring a big change in the scenery.
Coltsfoot and Horsetail starting to come up in the rubble at the base of the cliff, but not a horse in sight.
Ring-billed Gulls seemed to be picking up the clams.
