Leslie wanted to avoid the long drive straight to Bear River in Utah, so I decided I would take a last chance to visit Malheur before the Fall migration. As it turned out, we got there rather late at night and left rather early in the morning. We still managed to get a few nice shots, like this one of a Pronghorn Antelope and this one of swans and two cygnet. On our way out in early morning we saw a lot of deer, but this was my favorite shot. We also spotted favorites like this Night Heron and this male Ruddy Duck. We saw more Eastern Kingbirds than I’ve ever seen outside of California. It seemed like an auspicious start for a week-long birding trip.
