Early Morning Birding
For several months now I had been promising my friend’s son at trip to see some wildlife and finally I had a free weekend I could fulfill my promise. 5am came early as I jumped into the 4Runner with my camera bag full of equipment and headed to pick up my friend’s son. Our destination was a small pond, located near Springfield, ID, adjacent to the American Falls Reservoir. Our timing was important, not only to catch the sunrise, but I wanted to catch the birds, who had spent the night on the pond, before they took off. After a hour and twenty minute drive, we arrived at the destination. We slowly crept up to a small dock and blind and setup the tripod.
