Gone to the Birds

For some reason, I have been fascinated with birds on this trip. Here are few more pictures of the finches at Zion and the cheeky ravens at Bryce.

The finches were across from our RV site so I was trying to take pictures of them on the wing. I have a few successes. These birds are little athletes!













On the other hand, there is the Raven. Cheeky does not even begin to describe how brazen and brassy this bird is. He was not afraid of me, and I was within 5 inches of his beak! He looked me in the eye and dared me to get nearer. I took pictures of him for about 5 minutes before he became bored and soared away. It was a great 5 minutes.


...and here is his final gift to me!

All of the pictures sure turned out great. The birds are really good. Looking forward to seeing the ones of Capital Reef.
