Ping pong hail

Amanda, Baylis and I are visiting Nolan in Montana for a few days.  My first time in this state and it is VAST. While walking around the ranch we were briefly caught in a thunder storm, which quickly turned into a hail storm.  Though it did not match the baseball sized hail we had in Northfield in '06, it was approaching ping pong ball size and it hurt.

A couple of captures

A very young Red-breasted Nuthatch from yesterday's banding.

Our one and only Black-headed Grosbeak of the season.

More GHOWs

Two other Great Horneds from the same day at the point a few weeks ago.
