Actual Birding

16 Jun

I actually did some real birding today . . . well, my version of it, at any rate.  This whole trip (we’re on Day 5), I’ve mostly done 60 mph birding from inside the motorhome and my list is pretty impressive . . .

  • Pine Siskin (Reno, NV)
  • Red-Shoulder Hawk (Fernley, NV)
  • Ravens (everywhere between the Sierras and central Wyoming)
  • Black-billed Magpies (Salt Lake City)
  • Sandhill Crane (Park City, UT) LIFER
  • American White Pelicans (Echo Reservoir, Coalville, UT)
  • Tree Swallows (Echo Canyon, UT)
  • American Robin (Little America, WY)
  • Prairie Falcon (Hwy 80, Mile 138, WY) LIFER
  • Gulls (Laramie, WY)
  • Barn Swallows (Laramie, WY)
  • Horned Lark (Nebraska, near border with Wyoming) LIFER
  • Western Kingbird (Sidney, NE) LIFER

Mammal List thusfar

  • coyote (Wells. NV) — ran in front of motorhome, thankfully we didn’t hit it
  • Pronghorn, Antelope (from NV/UT border, through Wyoming, and into Nebraska)
  • Fox
  • bunnie
  • countless variations on ground squirrel/prairie dog

Western Kingbird, Sidney, NE

This morning, though, I got up early, took my camera and went on a walk around our campground.  I didn’t see many birds but any day that includes a lifer is just fine with me!
