Ohh.  But still, 100 miles?

Yeah we drove a lot on the highway back and forth. The Rest area is on the 80 mph highway and the nearest exits are several miles away in either direction. So to get from one side of the rest area to the other it's a good 10 minute drive. And then we had to go off another exit to get up in the Stone Hills which was quite a ways on gravel roads. So yeah we drove a lot 😛

Thanks! 🙂I was sitting on a rock pile where I know he hangs out. He eventually poked his head out. I was probably about 10-20 ft away but I'm bad at estimating distances.

@Melierax awesome video! (I wish I could hold my camera that steady when I take a video lol)

also I think the Wren drank too much coffee :classic_laugh::classic_laugh:

It takes a lot of patience and breath-holding 😛 It's taken me forever to get out of the habit of kinda talking over the microphone so it sounds like some creep whispering lmho

Just got back from a week-long trip to Yellowstone! It was amazing! I got yearbird Harlequin Duck and FINALLY got lifer Great Gray Owl!!

Steamboat didn't go off, but it's pretty active right now. We saw White Dome Geyser and Great Fountain Geyser go off! And of course Old Faithful. We waited for Beehive but it never went... rip 😛

Aww! I was just there two months ago and I didn’t see a Harlequin Duck! I’m super jealous.

Bummer! They're not super common though. I only saw them once the whole week... it can get really tiring looking through all the ducks there so I was lucky to see them alone.

I saw a butt-load of Barrow’s Goldeneyes when I went, as well as Canada Geese by the hundreds, a few Cinnamon Teal, a few Mallards, and a merganser.
