Hey, everybody. Some notes from around Boulder County, these past 10 days:
Today, Mon., Feb. 6, Boulder Reservoir. 1 first-cycle *great black-backed gull,* 1 first-cycle *lesser black-backed gull,* 1 first-cycle *Thayer gull,* 9 *bald eagles* all in one tree, and at least 3 eagles elsewhere around the Rez.
Sun., Feb. 5, Hecla Lake; with Andrew Floyd. 1 female *wood duck,* 1 singing *mourning dove.*
Sun., Feb. 5, Boulder Reservoir. 1 *greater white-fronted goose,* gazillions of "white-cheeked geese," 2 l*esser black-backed gulls* (1 third-cycle, 1 second- or third-cycle). Also thought I heard a Say phoebe, but it was distant, and I never got a visual on it.
