I've spent the past two mornings working on the new Shoshone Wetlands trails.
Today I worked on the lovely path behind the towns' natural warm spring swimming pool.
The birding is excellent back there. It opens up into a previously inaccessible meadow with hundreds of butterflies and dragonflies. While I was working, the young Cooper's Hawk made a noisy appearance, as well as a beautiful male summer tanager and tons of migrating warblers. Now folks will be able to get a great close up window to a desert wetlands oasis.
The fall migration is heating up. Here is the list of some of the birds seen in the last week.in Shoshone.
Red Tailed Hawk
Eurasian Collared Dove
Great Horned Owl
Olive sided Flycatcher
Red Breasted Nuthatch
Black Tailed Gnatcatcher
Orange Crowned Warbler
Black Headed Grosbeak
Brown Headed Cowbird
Come birding at Shoshone!
Please contact me by EMAIL at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to come to Shoshone Village for birding.
There are many wonderful birding hotspots nearby.
