I went fishing on Henrys Lake on Tuesday and had a good time except for the wind that was blowing when I got there and then started again about 9 after a couple of hours fishing. As I was coming off the water I saw a battle waging in the shallows. It was two male Red-necked grebes competing from a female. It was the first time I ever saw a Red-necked fly and also the first time for a battle.
Here is the winner of the female, showing off after chasing off his enemy.
This was the battle over the female.
Driving around the lake, I observed this mother Mountain Bluebird feeding her young.
