Wallowa magic (02/14-16/2015)

Casy Cunningham and I spent President’s Day in the Wallowas. We found many good birds including Gyrfalcon (every day), Pine Grosbeak (every day), Gray-crowned Rosy-finches, Gray Partridge, American Tree Sparrow, Bohemian Waxwing, Spruce Grouse, Harris’s Sparrow and many lesser birds. See my post on OBOL from 2/16.

The amazing Gyrfalcon was easy to see every day along the Imnaha Hwy between Tenderfoot Valley and Tucker Down Rds.

This male Spruce Grouse was at McCully Ck. Some other poor pix include American Tree Sparrow, Pine Grosbeak and Bohemian Waxwing.

We even got the Snowy Owl north of Weston on the way back.

It was great fun!
