Veery on Grimes Creek Road

At the beginning of June we headed up to Grimes Creek to check for the Veery that had been reported there in 2013. We quickly found one at about the same spot we found one last year. RL Rowland mentioned in a post on IBLE the year prior that he used to find them there regularly, but there weren’t any eBird records prior to 2013 there, so it’s unclear whether they had been there all along but nobody was looking for them, or if they had left the area but have recently starting using it again. Either way, it’s nice to have a reliable spot to find them close to Boise again!

Since being “rediscovered” in 2013 they’ve been found all up and down the creek, so there are likely quite a few in the area.
