Hey lookit this guy! This is from a couple months ago when we attempted to go birding at Turnbull NWR in Eastern Washington.
I think we saw a painfully disappointing 8 species, which was pretty ridiculous. However, this moose friend was a huge bonus, especially since I haven’t seen these guys since 2007 or 2008. Moooose!
This guy looked like he had recently shed his antlers. In other notes, I’ve been in civilization way too long and it’s breaking me.

She has worked with several federally endangered bird species (including the Golden-cheeked Warbler, Black-capped Vireo and Piping Plover), sea turtles, and bats all over the United States. She is rarely in one place for more than a few months at a time and her whereabouts are often confusing.

Through her photography, Jill hopes to convey her love and respect of the natural world.
