9/2/2017 My original plan for Saturday morning was to go to the Sheepdog herding competition at the Eastern Idaho State Fair. But when I got up later than I expected and was reluctant to face the crowds I changed my plans and birded around Gray’s Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Some of my favorite photos on the 2017 calendar came from this refuge. So I set out with my paper Idaho Atlas because the back roads rarely have cell service and my nav system doesn’t give me a complete picture.
I used both cameras, the Nikon superzoom and the sony a6500.
- Red tailed hawks
White faced ibises
Double crested cormorants
Not a huge number of bird species, but a lovely drive and lots of birds to look at even if many won’t pose for me.
