Hello All,
On 6 April four of us birded the Dry Lakes area south of Nampa, Idaho. We observed the following amid falling snow. 3 Trumpeter Swam,62 Tundra Swan, 1 Greater Snow Goose,1 Savannah Sparrow, 1 Say's Phoebe and 7 waterfowl species. Also found 6 American Avocets, 1 Long-billed Dowitcher and 7 Black-necked Stilts. Great fun to see a mix of winter and summer species!

Thanks for this report, Mike, and a BIG WELCOME to the BirdForum.

I'm pleased that you have ventured into our "visible" world. I hope you've enjoyed yourself while you have been having a look round.

I am particularly thrilled to see you name down for the GGBC.

Great stuff!

Looking forward to your sightings report, and many more (I hope) postings!

Mike: I lived in Boise for a year and have enjoyed my birding in subsequent visits. I especially liked spending time at Jump Creek Canyon. Welcome to the Bird Forums, and let us know what you're seeing out there.
