RICHLAND, WA. A jet boat awaits interested commuters for a fascinating trip up the Columbia River in Richland, Washington. These passengers are headed for the Hanford Reach- the last free flowing section of the Columbia in the United States. Along the shores of the river, passengers are graced with sights of deer and elk along with a diversity of birds. Scores of white pelicans are among the frequent visitors to the waterway. Pelicans aren’t the only birds you’ll find along this stretch of the Columbia, though. Among the varieties, white egrets, swallows, and sea osprey (fish hawk) are prevalent.
