8 June 2012

I finished recording birds this morning in Wyoming. Once again they were primarily in the willows along Lander Creek. After recording from this area, I travelled on to Magic Moutnain, Idaho (Sawtooth National Forest) where I had recorded and collected MacGillivray’s Warblers for my thesis work 27 years ago. I encountered some interesting events along the drive. I took some photos of a wind farm in Idaho, west of Pocatello. I also took video of some Sandhill Cranes foraging in the grass near the Gray Lake NWR. Finally, in Twin Falls I took some photos of the Snake River canyon in town.
