Day 3: More Bald Mt Birding

Ketchum, ID

semi-overcast 88 °F

This morning before I camp I birded part of the way up Bald Mountain here in Ketchum, Idaho again. It was rather slow but a few things were found-

Cool colorful moth which had been attacked by a chickadee:

Fawn Mule Deer which burst out of the shrubs along the trail, giving me quite a fright!

Believe it or not, this is the rump of a HAMMOND’S FLYCATCHER:

And my best find today, this pretty male CASSIN’S FINCH, my bird of the day.

great photos I hope I will see some day. Are the birds out West faster and tougher to view, out west in wild areas! I have been out there in the Winter and that is what I think I experienced-- fast posers
