|A Bullock's Oriole.|
|We loved walking among pines and aspens, searching for birds.|
|We also spent quite a bit of time in this burned-out pine forest...|
|An unusual species, the three-toed woodpecker, lives in and near the burned out forest, eating the beetles that|
live on the dead wood. After a long and frustrating search, we finally saw the bird in this photo.
|We saw a total of seven species of woodpecker today,|
including this Williamson's Sapsucker.
|Aspen trees have eyes!|
|Also at our guide's home: a pinyon jay.|
|Our guide and his wife, who cooked us a marvelous dinner including a pie.|
