The Rogue River wild section is both wild and tame. So many birds soaring high, or coming in low to check us out. Above is a Turkey Vulture.

Saw several bears across the river, I am sure they were on our side too.

And who could believe these orange bellied newts could secrete poisonous mucous when my son was playing with him.[/img]

5 days on the wild and scenic Rogue River.

Fantastic photographs Karrma!! I hope you'll take many more trips with that camera of yours and share the pictures with us again.

Thanks, Karrma. I loved the pictures. Your vultures have a white head and tail. Ours were either black or brown and some had red heads.Did you get the stories we sent?

Very cool Karma. Where is the Rogue river?

The turkey vultures are in the first photo, cannot see their red head with resizing the photos. The white head and tail is a fully adult bald eagle. They get the white head about 2 years and tail by 5 years. I am pretty sure that the egret is a great egret, as it has dark feet, and the snowy egrets feet are more yellow.

The rogue river is in southwest oregon, and the wild section (no motorized boats, limited permit use)is for about 35 miles, between Grants Pass and the Pacific Ocean.
