For the past couple weeks I have been doing bird counts throughout Idaho. The birds and scenery have been amazing and the change from the heat of Arizona to the cool north woods has been great.
Some of the bird/wildlife highlights have been:
Amazing looks at a Dusky Grouse.
Lots of Evening Grosbeaks.
A nesting Barred Owl.
A female Common Merganser with 8-9 babies
A quick look at a Spruce Grouse.
A Black Bear, 2 Moose, and Elk on the same day.
A pair of Long-eared Owls calling back and forth.
Just a few pictures from today . . .

to the morning.

as I ascended the mountains
