Saturday full of birds

Saturday I decided to run out to Market Lake Wildlife Managment Area to try to find a few birds.  There were some fun birds like this Clark's Grebe that I watched catching some lunch.  I love the beautiful red eyes.


Then I watched hundreds of coots and this Mom was feeding it newly hatched chick.

I love Snowy Egrets and they are getting more common here in Madison and Jefferson Counties here in Idaho. I watched as it caught and picked the spines off this small catfish.

Just another wild day in Idaho.

Good to see you back!
Great action photos of the birds catching their lunch. You're a master at capturing wildlife moments.

The baby coots are so comical looking! I have fond memories of when I first saw them in S Dakota. Nice photos Bill. :)
