And here one is warbling its head off.
Here is a tern, not sure which one, but I think it is a Caspian tern, looking for fish on the Henrys Fork.
As I came off the water from fishing on Henrys Lake, I was greeted by this Black-crowned Night Heron.
I also found this Mountain Bluebird on the shore of the Henrys Fork.
Catching my share of fish and then finding some great birds, what a great day to spend in the wilds of Idaho.

This Great Blue Heron had speared a catfish and couldn't flip it in the air to eat it. Hopefully it was able to get it off for dinner.
And of course, not week would be complete for me without an owl or two or three or four different species. I saw Burrowing, Great Horned, Great Gray, Short-eared and Long-eared owls. I guess that makes five species. Here is a picture of some baby Long-eareds - yes, they can fly.
What a great week to get soaked many times in the wilds of Idaho. By the way, I leave tomorrow morning for a week in New Orleans, so I will see you then.
