April 27, 2015 I departed my home in Poway for an expedition through eight western states, California to Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and back down the coast of California. The journey lasted 53 days and traversed over 5300 miles and concluded on June 18.
Though I met about 160 bird species, these are some of my favorite encounters from the trip.
I eliminated many worthy images from this presentation, but a more complete account can be viewed by connecting to the “BlogPics” page and selecting from the sets on display there.
Below are links to each episode from start to finish.
