Nevada Desert: SkyWatch Friday

While driving to Reno, I decided to look for some birds near a reservoir in Nevada. The reservoir had lots of birds but was was a very difficult place to bird. I was able to find Black-throated Sparrows which I hadn't seen for about 4 or 5 years. It is one of my favorite sparrows and it was good to finally see it again. While I was there a storm rolled in and the clouds were very interesting. I hope I get some sweet skies like these while in California.

Hi Nutty Birders! Great sky watch images. I like how the clouds are the real subject of the shot, the land seems so tiny compared to your towering cloudscapes.

Nice black and white shots of the clouds and desert scene Eric. You should be getting some great sky shots in California right now. We have some weak storms coming through the mountains.

In some ways it is also nice for us to see that there can be clouds in California and Nevada - at the moment we have none.
