BACK IN CAMP, AFTER A HARD DAY PHOTOGRAPHING PRAIRIE FALCONS ON THE ROCKY CLIFFS Suppertime meant feeding Maggie, the pet magpie (center), as well as two burrowing owl chicks and three hungry ornithologists. Here, attheedge ofthesage brush plains of southeastern Wyoming, no golden eagles were found, but the bluffs had other tenants-prairie falcons,sparrow hawks, awestern red-tail, aSwainson's hawk, and a great horned owl. In the middle of the day the exposed campsite became so hot that the party had toseek theshade ofthecanyons, butitwas cold at night. Drinking water had to be hauled in each day by car.
