Birds of the Sawtooth Mountains & Salmon River
Sawtooth National Recreation Area, May 11, 2008

On Mother's Day, we hosted a bird walk with Louise Stands, Stanley area resident and expert birder. We started at the Stanley Creek beaver pond complex where resident and migratory species of ducks, geese and other waterfowl are often seen. We saw cinnamon teals, pintails and Northern shovelers. Sandhill cranes were in nearby meadows. Then, along the Salmon River, we were fortunate to see bald eagles at their nest. At least two pair now live here year-around. We also spotted golden eagles by a nesting site. Near the river, ospreys were bringing twigs to construct nests on the top of power poles. There is an osprey colony of about a dozen nests at Redfish Lake. It was good to be outdoors on bare ground, after a long, snowy Idaho winter.
