Wood River Wetland

Today was a day off work for us and we chose to go birding at the Wood River Wetland.  We got an early start, and were birding by 7:15 AM in an effort to beat the heat.  The Wood River Wetland is a 3,000 acre wetland along the Wood River on the north edge of Agency Lake, and has one of the largest concentrations of birds of any place we have ever visited.  We birded for 3 hours and identified 42 different species.  Some we missed, but we will be back with our spotting scope to get a closer look. The best photo of our morning was this Double-crested Cormorant drying off its wings.
