Time Travel: June 18 & 19 2016

Birding with Melinda in Idaho: Wolverine Canyon, Scout Mountain, and Hawkins Reservoir and many farmlands in between. This was so much fun. We practiced birding by ear a lot and I tried to take pictures of the many, many, mountain bluebirds, non successfully.  The failure of this camera to take pictures of bluebirds was one of the reasons I bought a new camera the following March.
