  1. That's pretty cool that you got an egret, willet, and dowitcher all in the same shot! And cardinals are certainly not common here in the northwest... appreciate them!

  2. Thanks Jen. I really enjoy your photography. I will be in your corner of the world this weekend. My daughter is getting married this Saturday in Moscow, Idaho. Planning on birding Turnbull this Friday and Mann Lake on Sunday. Monday is open yet.
