Default Shots from the Easter weekend

I was able to get out a lot this weekend, unfortunately it was snowing most of the time :-( These are all taken around my cabin in Utah

A couple I'm not sure on the ID

Snowy Egret?

I don't know my hawks, there were a LOT of these around though.

All great, but I particularly like the great blue heron #2. Beautiful shot.

Thanks for commenting everyone!

This is the first Spring I've had the cabin and I'm pleasantly surprised at the variety. There were also Sage grouse, Kestrels, Meadow Larks, lots of different ducks, deer, and elk. I think a lot of them will leave with once it gets hot, but it's fun now! I own the cabin with my brother and cousin so I only get it every 3 weeks I'm hoping next time I can find some babies :-)

Nice pictures. The windblown white one is, as you guessed, a Snowy Egret. The hawk shot is great, but doesn't show enough to be sure of, but it may well be a Swainson's Hawk - these are quite variable in color and pattern.
