Uh - Huh

Just a Red-tailed Hawk shot to let any and all who check in around here know that I am still alive and well. Lunchtime birding trips have been unexceptional, even though a couple have been on beautiful days and have provided welcome breaks in the day. Last night was the first DFO meeting of the year, held at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The presentation last night was an introduction to Colorado's Gull species, and hopefully I will take away at least a few good tips.

Generally life has been busy, weekend days mid-winter get spent on the slopes, and the day to day activities of life still need to be accomplished. Next weekend may have one day of dedicated birding though, and those days are just getting longer - which will hopefully lead to more pre- and post-work walks.

Tonight's featured 'bird' activity will involve seeing a locally despised species, the occasional visitor to Colorado - a Jayhawk. Hopefully the mammals are well represented by the Buffaloes - and it will be a competitive battle between the classes waged on the hardwood tonight.

  1. Nice shot of the hawk! I've missed a couple of opportunities for shots at a Golden Eagle who lives somewhere around here. Sooner or later...
