An Hour At Barber Park


07Mar2014_1b_Greenbelts-Barber_FishermanI spent about an hour at Barber Park, just east of Boise and along the Boise River. Hoping for Bald Eagles, but just a little late in the season for them. Better looking for them in December and January. But I did see a variety of things: this guy fishing, Red-Tail hawk, raccoon tracks, Great Blue Heron and a beautiful Bohemian Waxwing. The Red-Winged Blackbirds were singing, too.
A good day for this short walk. Light winds and temperature about 58 degrees. Maybe one of these days I will get up early enough so I can be there at about 8 am. Better sightings at that time. But for now, enjoy these photos and Left-Click any of them to see them enlarged. Keep Looking Up!
