Low Tide: 0.6' @ 11:26 AM
With beautiful, sunny weather and light winds HRAP staff and volunteers were busy educating and interpreting for the large number of visitors to Haystack Rock on Saturday. Our highest visitor count during the shift was 186 people in the intertidal.
Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus luecocepahlis) have been seen almost daily during our recent shifts, hunting the intertidal and soaring over the Rock. There are two nesting pairs in the area that visit Haystack Rock. Keep an eye out for them and for the occasional juvenile or sub-adult passing by.
