Common Loon - Idaho



I captured this image yesterday morning on a small reservoir in Eastern Idaho. I am sure that this bird is migrating and will move to a higher lake to reproduce when it warms enough for the ice to melt. It was fun to hear the loons calling in the morning before it was light enough to take this photo.

Black Necked Stilt - Lake Meade, Nevada


I took this photo this evening. There were five Stilts in the flock, but I was only able to get two of them together.

Mourning Dove - Hoover Dam, Nevada

The wind was ruffling the feathers on this Dove when I took this photo. It has been very windy here the past two days and the birds were hugging the ground. Canon 60D with 500 mm lens
