Found a handful of adults out foraging in the powdery "uplands." Looked hard for parowana, but no dice

Description

At the water's edge the playa was nearly pure halite (NaCl). I was hoping there might be Short-leggeds out here. Perhaps too early, or perhaps they're just not at this location. The last photo shows a behavior I saw a number of times, where the beetle shoved its face down into the crystals to try to get at something. I dubbed it the "Downward Dog" hunting/scavenging technique.

A sprinkling of Williston's could be found all along the Huck Salt Mine Rd., and in a variety of habitats. What looks like standing water here is actually crusted over solid with salt

Fairly cool, blustery day. This was the only species out, in small numbers, and I think every one I saw was a male.

I don't post many birds, but this Black-and-White Warbler was just begging for my attention while we were waiting for a parade to start. So I walked a few paces and grabbed this with the point-and-shoot
