PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Hundreds of thousands of salmon are making their way from the ocean up the Columbia River this month, a windfall for salmon eaters and tribal and recreational fishermen in the Pacific Northwest.
It’s one of the largest runs since dam construction blocked river passage for fish. The run is forecast at 1.5 million salmon by year’s end – though fish managers say the final number may turn out to be lower.
More than 460,000 adult chinook have already passed over the Bonneville Dam on their way to spawning areas in native streams. That’s the first dam salmon cross in their migration upriver.
Monday’s 67,521 chinook were the largest single-day return since the dam was built in 1938.
Fish managers attribute the large run to good ocean conditions and improved habitat.
Love to plant specific plants to attract the butterflies in my garden!
Wow! Did I have fun today! The San Diego Wild Animal Park had their spring Butterfly Encounter and this was the first year I was home to see it. The butterflies flew around you in an open-air aviary. (Please click to enlarge).
We all were mesmerized. I was blown away by how gentle the little children were, cupping their hands to protect the landing butterflies.
See for yourself, the butterflies were ethereal!
The flowers were pretty amazing too~
It was wonderful to be reminded how much children naturally love our planet’s creatures.
The butterflies reminded me of the ones I saw in Iguazu Falls who loved to hitch rides on humans.
You had to be inspected before you left to make sure you weren’t carrying out a hitchiker!
They were not the least bit afraid.
What an amazing experience!
I almost made it out with this hitchiker on me!

Late snowfall this year has delayed the usual feeding session of Rocky Mountain Elk, which is currently taking place in the L.T. Murray wildlife area located west of Ellensburg. The feeding program is usually scheduled for December, but the delayed nature of this year’s snowfall has pushed it all the way into March. Check out these awesome photos of the elk herd’s arrival, which will make you envious of wildlife photographers.
