Amid the general busyness of life, I've been able to sneak in some really great eBirding at my local patches. I've been consulting almost full-time at the Avimor community in the Boise foothills and so my lunch hour bird walks have been most wonderfully reinstated. I've been thrilled and delighted with the return of each migrant species. I've not been doing a lot of photography, but just a enough digiscoping to keep me up on my game.
Snow Geese at Fort Boise WMA near Parma, Idaho.
I've got a Say's Phoebe nesting right outside my office window.
I saw and identified a Ferruginous Hawk for just the second and third times of my life in the last week or so.
Took my family and earlier a group of Boy Scouts camping in the Avimor backcountry and added several patch-first birds like Hairy Woodpecker, Snow Geese, Peregrine Falcon
Six Great Horned Owl nests and Two Red-tailed Hawk nests at Avimor
|This Great Horned Owl nested on a very high power line tower on a nest usually used by Red-tailed Hawks. I've seen at least one fuzzy white head sticking up during feeding time. Pretty cool!|
|I just love to hear these Western Meadowlarks singing each day.|
|A nesting pair of Osprey near Eagle Island State Park on my way from home to work. Fun to see every day. Also funny to see the amount of whitewash on the road below this nest!|
