Birds of North Dakota, Part 2

Without comment, or further ado, here are a few more of our photographs of the birds of North Dakota from our trip last week with friends Paul Baicich and Lisa Rock. Much more still to come about the prarie, habitat and culture of that under-appreciated part of our country...

Wow! More Wildlife Refuges than in any other state?! That is a great tidbit.

Birdcouple, your pictures are absolutely breathtaking. We're glad that you had an amazing trip. Welcome home.

Thanks, Paige! North Dakota is... different. And very beautiful in its own way.

How's life in Hot-lanta?
