First Sun Shinny Day

And what a hit:

 This is a beautiful Blue Heron in mating plumage, which you can see on the back of the bird.  Doesn't show much while flying, but it's really beautiful.

There's an Osprey nest closer to where we are staying, but on a visit on the Madison River, this was a blast to see one so close.

 An old fav location is an old Golden Eagle's nest on Slough Creek, and it's back in operation...both parents were on the nest today.

Finally here's the female (or so I think it is) doing a little nesting.  The black figure to the right is not a bird, but a black splotch on the rock which looks like a bird, and makes it really easy for me to find the nest location!!!
