Steens Mountain 

The focus of our trip to the Steens was to find Black Rosy-finches and to do some hiking.

We didn’t find any Black Rosy-finches for certain. We did see a flock of birds afar that sounded like Black Rosy-finches, and looked the right size, but I did not get good enough looks of them.

Rock Wrens, however, accompanied us everywhere we went. Species #223.

Enjoy some Rock Wren photos and some photos of the Steens and Wildhorse Lake.
