Reifel Bird Sanctuary - August 18 and 19

This post contains the last group of photos taken at Reifel Bird Sanctuary in August.

Saturday August 18

This day started with a decent shot of a Northern Harrier patrolling the outer perimeter of the Sanctuary.

This next shot has been cropped to make it look as artistic as possible.

It's always a treat to see a Cinnamon Teal. In this case it was the elegant female who was putting on a show.

A bit later in the day another female popped up, in this case a Western Tanager. This might be my first sighting of the female of this species.

Further along in my visit I saw this pair of Sandhill Cranes, looks like a mother and a juvenile to me:
