Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge

I did sneak out for a short stroll through the wildlife refuge this morning.
They don't call it a wetlands for nothing!

Lots of birds and squirrels, heard a woodpecker but didn't see him.
And two muddy shoes!

I guess I almost waited too long and should have gone in Feb. It took me several minutes to find this little guy

This is the Tadpole Pond today after all the winter and spring rains.

This is the same pond last Aug.

It looks like a neat spot. If you didn't see many tadpoles, does that mean a bunch of toads were hopping around somewhere?

It's a nice little getaway within the city when you don't have much time.
There should have been but I didn't see any. :(
I've been hearing them at night around my place. Lots of little streams and creeks around here.

They have a paved path for bikes that hooks up with the 40 mile bike loop down by the Willamette River and many nonpaved trails for hikers. The path around the tadpole pond is gravel, others are wood chips, but most are just dirt. I didn't see any trails under water but they are quite muddy in several places.
