Nevada Bird Count 2013, mid-May to early June

The amazing NBC crew has been hiking over hill and over dale in search of birds … not to mention wading through rivers, climbing over dunes, and tunneling through tamarisk.  Lots of great views, fun birds, and some impressive hiking skills!  We’re almost entirely transitioned from our Mojave Desert surveys up into the Great Basin, with just a handful of surveys left down south to be done over the next week.  Here are a few photos from the past month – most of them are from Clark County, but a few are from our early Great Basin surveys.  A couple of photos are from the headwaters of the Walker River in California; the rest are all Nevada!  Thanks for all your hard work, guys!
