Today at work I almost hit a deer, saw my
first Western Tanager, discovered a secret
Jacobite community and spent hours of driving
next to beautiful rivers and through gorgeous
green hills. Here’s a nice shot of the
Clearwater River near Orofino.
And here is the Gorgeous Wastern Tanager -
first spotted by Lewis and Clark when they
were near Weippe, Idaho, one of the places
where I was today. You can hear what a
Western Tanager sounds like here.
This bird was so gorgeous I gasped out
loud when I saw it. Such bright colors!
More on the Jacobites later.
