One of the maps I obtained from the Visitor Center is for bird watching in Southeast Idaho. So I decided to be a “bird watcher” for the day.
There are a lot of lakes, reservoirs and rivers in the area. Just today, I went to Blackfoot Reservoir, Grays Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Palisades Reservoir, Salt River, and Alexander Reservoir. As I was told, Southeast Idaho is a heaven for birds!
Even there are so many birds, it is not easy to “catch” them in my camera. Instead of being a “bird watcher”, I felt like I was a “bird chaser”! None of the birds allowed me to get close enough for a good shot. I was simply “chased” them away wherever I went. Oh well, at least I got some shots, some of those I know the name, but others I don’t.
A good “bird watcher” isn’t that easy to be. 🙂
