some highlights and photos:
-we finished our time in Hailey near the Big Wood River, and ended up with a special treat on our last day there. Jay and I had split up when I got a phone call from Jay saying that he had found a male Chestnut-sided Warbler!! of course I made it over there as soon as I could, and we were both able to get some great looks at the little dude, and listen to him sing! how cute!!! (we also had to contend with some very big and angry bulls in that field!!)
the chestnut-sided warbler!
oh, and while waiting out the heat of the day after surveys yesterday, Jay and I scouted out a nice lava tube to hang out in. It made for a great office! but...soon the thunderstorms hit, and it got a little wet (not good for laptops!)
