Sourdough Creek

I've never seen a Bohemian waxwing, but a quick bit of homework gives me hope of seeing a winter flock. Sure enough, I find a flock of about 120 in aspens along the Sourdough trail (part of Bozeman's great trail system), next to a creek of the same name.

Also a hairy woodpecker, though my excitement is minimal since Midwest woods hold plenty of them. On a short hike the day before I was pretty sure I'd heard a raven's croak, but today is a sure thing when one flies over, its wedge-tail obvious from below.
