My name is Matt Hunter. I live in the Melrose area and explore birds and habitats throughout the Umpqua Basin. I try to canoe the Umpqua estuary several times a year. The attached photo was taken April 28, 2013 on one of my trips from Salmon Harbor up to Gardiner. This is an immature Bald Eagle chasing an Osprey with a fish.
We are looking for photos of the area stretching from Coos Bay to Florence and east to Elkton. People, culture, events, you name it…accepting submissions for March and April and will putting submissions online in the meantime. Voting will take place in May – there will be cash and prizes to be announced. Send your submissions with a short bio, description of the photo, and when it was taken (if possible) to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it on our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/reedsportdotinfo
