Pix from yesterday's trip to Antelope Island, part 1

So, after sorting through them and doing the crop-resize-and-enhance thing, it appears that I took forty pictures I really liked yesterday. I'll do two posts of twenty each. And, since there are so freaking many, I'm going to be shortcutting the html.

First up, birds.

First off, an experiment in taking pictures of gulls in flight, which was actually successful. (The California Gull, for those who do not know, is the State Bird of Utah.)

A ring-necked pheasant, which I've never seen on Antelope Island before:

A red-winged blackbird getting his red on:

Yellow-headed blackbirds:

Western Meadowlarks:

A killdeer:

A sage thrasher, which was new for my life list:

I think this is also a sage thrasher, but I am really unsure:


Brown-headed Cowbird:

And a whole bunch of avocets:
