Winding down trip. Excess heat put a damper on several days so went to coast for the day for cooler temps. Visited some new parks and enjoyed the day. That evening went out to locate lifer common poorwill.

Just returned from an amazing trip to Kalispel, Montana and Glacier National Park. This was a bucket list trip for me thanks to the help of my son. He allowed me to tag along with him for a week long convention he attended in Kalispel. Glacier Park blew me away. Once you get above the tree line you enter a world of rocky peaks and deep valley's. The view's are as exciting as the numbers of birds you see and hear. The Going to the Sun road is not for the faint of heart. The two lane road whit is sufficient for car's to pass does have shear drops on one side of the road. Many pull-offs are available to allow you to stop and take in the views. You defiantly want get into the park before sunrise in order to beat the crowds and get a parking spot at Logan Pass in order to view the sunrise. Many opportunities to bird are available to bird around Kalispel and Whitefish too. Searching the many pothole marshes in area will yield waterfowl and migratory shorebirds. I was just a bit early for migrants and missed so waterfowl. If i get the chance to go back I would go in late June. Whitefish Mountain Resort has the Danny On trail will gains 2000 ft to top of mountain. You go through various types of bird habitat along the way. I must admit I was only able to complete half of the 4 mile trail. Tough climb for a flat lander. I did go back and take the lift to the top for some spectacular views of the area.

On the birding side I was able to locate 5 new life birds which was a bonus. But to simply hear and see the numbers of birds in the area made the trip one to remember. And getting to spend some time with my son was a bonus. Plus he got off a day early and we went hiking in Glacier.

Been awhile since my last post. Been rather slow this fall along with dealing with Hurricane Irma. We lucked out big time with storm as it moved east of us. Evacuated expecting to loose my home but fortunately no damage. Can't say the same for Keys. Will be months before they get things somewhat back to normal.
Big news was an American Golden Plover that showed up on Wed evening this week at Ft DeSoto Park. Bird is still being seen today. Was lucky enough to go see it Thursday after work.

It's been a slow fall. Weather has remained hot with no fronts to push the birds into our area. No much to report
