A cold and windy day in Barber Park today. Lots of Canada Geese and Common Mergansers. A few American Kestrels. This one was perched on a wire just outside the park. I also was working with a new app for my Droid phone. The app is called Hiker and, by using GPS, track your location, your altitude and it has a compass with it. From my phone, I was at Position: Latitude 43.569166 N, Longitude 116.144099 W, Altitude 2726 feet. You can see where I was by entering the Lat and Long in a map program, like Google Maps or Earth. The Kestrel pictured here and below is simply beautiful. Enjoy these photos. Keep Looking Up!

Just beautiful colors! “Here’s lookin’ at ya.”
Common Merganser (not a Common Goldeneye) in flight. See the comments.
As a note: Thanks to Robert Mortensen (SLC, Utah) and Greg Stone (Emmett, ID) for the correction on the Common Merganser. Thanks! I always appreciate the corrections and the comments.
