Gray Lodge Wildlife Area
Don't you just love it when a bird poses perfectly for your camera? Well, this Great Egret did just that on the auto tour at the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area...






Uh-oh! He's on to us!

Gray Lodge Wildlife Area Auto Tour

Seeing a group of Turkey Vultures as you pull into the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area auto tour might seem a little ominous, but we hit the jackpot!

We got to watch as this Great Blue Heron caught himself a frog!

STOP for birds!

While we were on the viewing platform at Gray Lodge Wildlife Area, we saw the cutest little group of California Quail bee-bopping around.
 I can't help but smile every time I see their head plumes!
 These guys are probably the fastest bird I've ever seen, too.

 More pics from Gray Lodge coming tomorrow!

Sunrise Staredown

Right after we pulled into the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area, we were greeted by a fierce looking Red-tailed Hawk!

The sun was just about to rise over the mountains and he was on the lookout for breakfast...

 Look at those sharp talons!


Intimidating to say the least!
I'm jealous of how beautiful birds look so early in the morning! Not a feather out of place...
