Market Lake Sitting Sun

Leaving Market Lake after spending the evening birding and recording 52 species of birds and seeing a moose and 21 mule deer, I watched the sun as it went to bed.  Just a wink and a nod before it closed its eyes completely signalled the death of a day but the birth of the night.


Another beautiful day spent in the wilds of Idaho.

FIFTY-TWO kinds of birds, *good* job, Bill!
I'm trying to make a point of looking up from my computer and out my office window more often to see what's flying around in Chicago (which is in the middle of the Mississippi fly-way). Watched a hawk - I think it was a red-tail, though we also frequently have Cooper's - try and fail to catch a squirrel the other day. Nice distraction from the daily grind :-)
49 days 'til we land in Bozeman!

And let me see now, why was it we thought we needed to leave the Pacific Northwest for the winter?

What a wonderful evening! Thanks for sharing.
