We love our Bald Eagles up at Eagle Lake

Grandma's least favorite bird....the Brown Headed Cowbird. They are gluttons when it comes to bird seed....they don't leave any for the other birds.

Bullock's Oriole

I know I said the Stilt was my favorite bird up at the lake....but the California Quail is really my favorite!

Tom got these Caspian Tern's at the Thermalito Afterbay....but they're also seen up in the mountains.

We have enjoyed viewing all of these birds up at Eagle Lake with Grandma Naoma over the years. Grandma lives in Boise now, but we thought we'd bring a little bit of her hometown area to her on her 97th birthday. Happy Birthday Naoma!
