Hello Colorado Birders:

The fresh snow and drop in temperatures after the cold front Thursday
brought a significant influx of rosy-finches to my feeders here in
Telluride. I witnessed a feeding frenzy Friday and Saturday with about 20
pounds of hulled sunflower consumed both days. All three* species were
observed and over 1000 individuals (almost entirely Brown-capped). The blue
skies and rising temperature today has thankfully dispersed/calmed them
down quite a bit.

Photos and numbers can be viewed at my eBird checklist from Friday here:

Good birding,
Eric
