Weekend Update

Pretty quiet actually. A Common Loon on Baseline Reservoir Friday morning was the highlight of the birds. I did have a couple of hours late Friday, so I took a nice walk at Adams County Regional Park. The Platte was still quiet - only Mallards at the moment, but I did have a nice hen Ring-necked Pheasant explode from the brush at my feet.

A first day of skiing didn't produce any notable birds - one potential Gray Jay was just a silhouette. Birding now switches to mornings while that light lasts, and forecasts indicate that wintry weather may be headed to the area in a few waves over the coming days. I guess we are due, but 70 and sunny is tough to trade in for highs in the 50s tomorrow.

  1. I've been wishing the last week or so that I had your knack for photographing birds: for some reason we are having a lot of Clark's Nutcrackers visiting the valleys.
