This evening I went hunting for a flock of Pinyon jays along the South Fork of the Snake River. I found them visiting a house with feeders near junipers. With the heavy cloud cover and lateness of the day, good pictures were hard to come by. Here is a male feeding in a juniper.
Another male takes off from the top of a juniper bush.
I got permission to set up a blind on the property and the first day we have good light, I will be there waiting for some good photos.
I also found a pair of Downy woodpeckers flirting with each other. Here is the male with his red skull cap on.
Here the female is playing a little coy as she glances at him.
What a great way to spend some time in the wilds of Idaho and the birds of Madison County.
