Skywatch Friday - Season 4 Episode 9

Skywatch Friday: The Sky Watches Over Duluwat Island in Humboldt Bay

This island is sacred to the Wiyot Tribe of Humboldt Bay. The first photo shows an egret rookery. When the egrets are nesting, the trees are covered with the lovely white birds. The next two photos show an old building that was once a baptist church, built after the island was stolen from the Wiyot. The island's colonized name is "Indian Island." Here is a link that tells the story of the troubled history of this beautiful place.

The sky watches over all that happens on our earth. Please visit Skywatch Friday to see skies from many lands.
