Fun Idaho Summer Birding at Avimor

It was great birding this morning at Avimor along Spring Valley Creek! I had another Avimor official record first: a pair of MacGillivray's Warblers.

Another bird of great interest to me was group of Warbling Vireos. I doesn't matter how many times I see them, but I am amazed every time I see the Spotted Towhee, Great Horned Owl, and Downy Woodpecker. I was also surprised to have the four juvenile Western Tanagers and several juvenile Lazuli Buntings. The Black-headed Grosbeaks weren't afraid of me at all this morning as they fed on plants within a few feet of me.

Here is the full eBird report of what I saw this morning:
