Geyser Birds

March 23, 2017  •  2 Comments

These two were quite a surprise as we walked up to the lower geyser basin at Mammoth and we heard birds.  Took a while to spot them and I was amazed they were playing around at the bottom of the springs.   Of course I didn't have the right camera but still was pretty happy with the shots I got.   I definitely have a new appreciation for their camouflage.

I am not familiar with this bird, he has stripes all around his head...way cool :)

Very nice! They blend in quite easily. I've managed to photograph a few (when they'll sit still). They're pretty common even in our urban setting.
