Birds along the Snake river in Idaho
I really love the boondock spot we are in right now. We stayed here last year, and loved it so much, we knew we would be back at some point.
There are so many different birds along the Snake river, that’s what makes this place so awesome.
The blue heron always remind me of a pterodactyl. Long goofy legs, and a long beak. But I love watching them.
Just look at those legs as this one lands.
This is a different heron, and it’s sitting on a nest. See the baby to the bottom left of mom? I have to go find this nest again, I’m pretty sure this little one isn’t flying just yet.
I’ve seen a few young bald eagles, just like last year. I don’t wonder if this one isn’t a chick from this year.
We took a drive the other night and watched this young hawk. Pretty positive this is a chick from this year. He would fly short distances between trees, so he never went too far.
These guys are one of my favorites. I love their coloring.
We’ve had some pelicans circling overhead. I call these guys the B-52s of the bird world.
And some mergansers on the river. Love that fuzzy red head.
We have had an extraordinary amount of rain. We got here Thursday late afternoon, and it has rained pretty much everyday, with a few really intense thunderstorms. (which thrills Torrey no end)
The other morning the clouds were hugging the mountains, and winding around the pine trees. I love stuff like this.
It rained all day that day, so I decided to do some creative editing. I took one of the misty mountain shots, and added a herd of wild horses.
I quite like the way it turned out.
The weather is suppose to get sunnier, so that will be nice. I must say, it’s been nice to have cool, almost cold nights and cooler days. The heat in Utah when we left was beyond unbearable. It’s so green and lush here too, we really do love a mountain state.
