On the way to Market Lake I stopped to see if the Burrowing owlets were out of the nest yet. They were not, but the mother came over to check me out.
At Market Lake willets were on the edge of the ponds.
A cormorant was fishing in the deep water near the road. It is funny that they often swim with most of their body under the water.
Western grebes have started nesting so the males and juvies are swimming around lonely.
Forester terns were all over the place - oops - I forgot to load a poor picture of the Black tern.
The Black-crowned Night-herons kept flying over the ponds and marshes.
The color-clashing Ruddy duck males were everywhere while their mates are probably nesting somewhere in the reeds.
And finally as I was leaving Market Lake a Great egret decided to say "hi" to me. It was the first one of the season.
Just a few enjoyable hours spent in the wilds of Idaho. Have a great week.
