Hovis at Lookout Pass

Stopping at the rest area on Lookout Pass, Montana yesterday, it was time to stretch our legs. Of course that meant that Hovis had to get out of the truck also to stretch her wings! What would she think of the snow? She loved it just like she does the rain. Flap, flap, flap.

Her bright adult plumage is beginning to come through. She has been molting pretty badly recently but the snowy background really shows her true colors are in fact coming through. Yes, you can still see quite a bit of grey on her chest.

Weather was beautiful today as we continued traveling through Montana. No early start today but still arrived at our next stop before dark. I’ve decided I like these shorter driving days! (Think everyone does.) Tomorrow we head into South Dakota.
