Christmas Birds Counts in Idaho
Posted by Birding is Fun!
Lake Lowell holds a lot of memories for me. When I was a young boy we lived in a home in Nampa without air conditioning, so we spent several summer evenings swimming at the lake while eating a bucket of fried chicken. Cub Scout days camps were spent along it shores and we fished from its docks and banks. When I was a teenager, my dad took us out there regularly to waterski, at least until the algae got too thick in mid to late summer. My in-laws live very near Lake Lowell now (my father-in-law Lynn is the official organizer of this year's CBC) and it is the site where my birding addiction began! Even before I got into birdwatching I knew that Deer Flat was the place to see Bald Eagles.
