My Birding Week

Hello,

So, part of my birding week was at home in my backyard, and another part was on the Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge here in Nampa, Idaho. I got lots of pictures of lots of birds.

Not the best picture, but I had a brief moment to catch this picture of a Golden Eagle in the distance.

Jared, I think your "Peregrine" is actually an Osprey.

I just took a look at my bird identification book, and I discovered you guys were right. It is an osprey.

My mistake. Sorry about that.
