Then in mixed flocks of waterfowl, I found these two Canada's playing "wings" as they kept flirting with each other.
The flocks of waterfowl were joined by the first flight of Snow and Ross's geese that are about two weeks early from their normal migration here.
About 130 snows joined other waterfowl to eat the leftovers from the digestive process of a herd of bison west of Market Lake.
There were seven pair of Northern Harriers doing their mating flights over the still frozen ponds of Market Lake. Here I caught a female harassing seven Long-eared owls in a windrow of thick brush.
It appears that six of the seven owls have chosen their partners for the nesting season while one needs a dating service to find someone before Valentine's Day.
Its beginning to look like a love fest has started in the wilds of Idaho. May Cupid smile down on you during this time of new beginnings.
