Market Lake – January 2020

I was in Idaho Falls for work reasons so I was able to take a drive up to Market Lake in the early evening. The roads were dry until I got to the preserve then there was a lot of snow. I did not go all the way to the shelter belt since I was uncertain of my cars ability to deal with the 6-10 inches of snow on the road. Not a lot of bird species out and about in my two hour drive. But there were quite a number (probably 7 or so) Rough legged hawks. Funny how only the raptor photos worked out. – Jenny
