My nearly 19 year old daughter, Emma, went birding with me yesterday for
Father's Day. She likes camping, so we went to Bethel Ridge so that I might
pick up Flammulated Owl, Black-backed and American Three-toed Woodpeckers.
Emma is not a birder! But occasionally is up for humoring her dad. Despite
herself, she is developing a nice list of bird's.
Emma's highlights:
Indigo Bunting: Audubon Rd. (She found the bird while I was gabbing with
another birder). I was very proud!
Lewis's Woodpecker, Lazuli Bunting and Yellow-breasted Chat: Oak Creek Rd.
At Bethel Ridge Rd.
Black-backed Woodpecker feeding Young at nest cavity. (Just before MP.1.5
left side, heading up road).
Common Nighthawk:
Flammulated Owl: (heard this morning from camp) Just past MP. 4.5
She also picked up Sooty Grouse (heard), Chipping Sparrow, Hermit Thrush
and Townsend Solitaire, while avoiding helping setting up camp.
Birds Emma missed:
Common Poorwill: Landed at campsite after Emma turned in for the night.
American Three-toed Woodpecker and Prairie Falcon: (while Emma slept in).
