[IBLE] FOYs in Salmon (Lemhi County)


A trip to Salmon yesterday included some good birding and flood observation. Lots of locals were out checking the water levels on the Salmon River, which were high enough to prevent access to the sewage ponds. However, the nature trail at the Sacawajea Interpretive Center was in good shape and I found 35 species there. FOY sightings included Dusky Flycatchers and a singing Black-headed Grosbeak.
On the drive up from Challis along Hwy 93, a stop at the Cottonwood Campground (Custer County) yielded a singing FOY House Wren.
