My New Birds Found While Traveling from Billings, Montana to Yellowstone

American Goldfinch

My husband, grandson and I took a trip to Billings, Montana in July for a family reunion, trip to Yellowstone and fishing. Along the way I was always on the lookout for the birds. My goal was hopefully to get 5 new ones. I exceeded this by seeing 14! I did not get a photo of the Lark Bunting and a very poor one of the Barrow's Goldeneye which is the last of these photos. It was an amazing trip with family. We were especially happy to share this time with our 19 year old grandson, Tallan.
