Days 1-2: Idaho!

semi-overcast 88 °F

Yesterday, my family and I flew out of Chicago for our annual trip to Sun Valley, Idaho! My mom plays in the Sun Valley Summer Symphony out here and for these two weeks I will enjoy a music camp affiliated with the symphony, and then a bit more than a week of birding and hiking. Though I am in music camp for a while, like in Italy, I will be able to go birding intermittently and I will post on here.

Birding today before camp yielded a few nice species, including this juvenile VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOW:

And my bird-of-the-day, a great, uncommon species called a WILLIAMSON’S SAPSUCKER! This is a juvenile type.

Good birding!
