And after two hours in the freezing north wind, I decided to hit some of the Russian Olive groves looking for birds and animals. Two moose flushed as well as about 20 Northern Flickers. But the find of the morning was an onery Great Horned owl.
And a beautiful Downy Woodpecker, that would get a Russian olive and then pound it against a branch or a tree to open it up.
I did go to Roberts Pond on the way home and caught some perch and some little trout. So I did not get skunked.
Then on the way home, I found an old potato field with over 200 trumpeter swans feeding and resting.
Not a bad way to spend another wild day in Idaho.
