Subject: [cobirds] Saturday Waterfowl in Delta County - five species of geese at Confluence Park
Hello Colorado Birders:

I made a few stops in Delta County midday on Saturday and tallied a fine
assortment of waterfowl.

At Fruitgrowers Reservoir outside of Eckert, there were twelve duck
species. A drake Cinnamon Teal stood out among the Green-winged Teal.
Ring-necked Ducks and Common Mergansers were by far the most numerous.
Three Bald Eagles were in attendance. The complete list of species can be
viewed here: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S34316125

Next stop was Confluence Park in Delta. The drop-off in numbers
(particularly Canada Geese) from when I visited the site in late January
was conspicuous. Offsetting that was my first five goose species site in
Colorado. Two Greater White-fronted Geese were the addition to go along
with Cackling, Canada, Snow, and Ross's. Photos of all the species are in
my eBird checklist here: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S34316413

Good birding,
Eric
