Wide Open Spaces

I took a couple of photos of the landscape when we were in Klamath taking bird photos. There was so much wide, open space. Driving back that evening we hoped to get some sunset photos. The sunset itself wasn't very impressive but behind us, the colors were beautiful. Maralee

Snowy Egret

The snowy egret is a beautiful medium-sized white heron. In the 19th century, the birds were slaughtered for their plumes, but with protection they recovered fairly rapidly. Maralee

Turkey Vulture

We saw plenty of turkey vultures on our trip to the Klamath Basin. They're beautiful in flight, but they aren't very good looking birds close up. Maralee


We found these pelicans . . . and one sandhill crane . . . sitting in a field. Maralee
