A Gallery: Malheur and Thereabouts

Top to bottom: Red-breasted Sapsucker, Rocky Point, Klamath Lake.     2) Cinnamon Teal     3) Another Cinnamon Teal male.   4) Franklin’s Gull in marsh at Malheur, note the dark gray mantle.  This gull is darker and larger than similar Bonaparte’s.    5) Two members of Great Horned Owl family at Malheur Visitors Center.  The fledglings were “branching” as they prepare for first flight.    6) Eagle flight profile, Malheur along Hwy 205.  7) One of many WF Ibis flocks that we saw during three days at Malheur.  They favor a fluid, libertarian approach to flight “pattern.”

Our final Malheur stats here.
