Hi all

Mary Harris, Jennifer Long and I enjoyed several hours birding yesterday on “blustery Saturday”. Highlights included

My yard in rural Carbondale
Lincolns Sparrow 1 – and still present today, Sunday
Lesser Goldfinches several
But no sign of the Pinyon Jays that are erratic in visiting currently

Blue Lake (El Jebel)
Common Merganser 4
A few Canada Geese and Mallard.
It’s such a shame how this lake, formerly a wildlife mecca, is but a mere shadow of its former glory

Fantastic numbers of wildfowl – a real jewel in the valley!
100’s of Ring-n.Duck, Lesser Scaup, Gadwall, Shovelers, Green-w.Teal, Coot
Cinnamon Teal 1
Barrow’s Goldeneye c50
Common Goldeneye scores
Common Merganser c50
Sandhill Crane 3
Bald Eagle 1
Northern Shrike 1
American Avocet 1
Tree Swallow c20
Yellow-headed Blackbird 1 male

Snowmass Village
Long-tailed Weasel
Red-naped Sapsucker
Evening Grosbeak 2

Good birding all
