Subject: [cobirds] Mountain Lakes
Norm Erthal, Dan Brooke, Cheryl Teuton and I headed up to some mountain
lakes today under beautiful, sunny skies and calm winds.

It appears that many "waterbirds" have not come down from the north yet, but
still some goodies are present already.

Eleven Mile Reservoir (Park):
2 Surf Scoters in the middle of the lake
22 Surf Scoters in a single flock at the west end of the lake
Among the flock of twenty-two Surf Scoters was 4 White-winged
Scoters! 26 total scoters in a single flock!
3 Common Loons

Spinney Mountain Reservoir (Park):
4 Surf Scoters
2 Common Loons

Antero Reservoir (Park):
1 Surf Scoter
6 Common Loons

Buffalo Creek Reservoir (Park):
Many ducks, nothing unexpected

Ice Pond (in Buena Vista) (Chaffee)
Many ducks, nothing unexpected

Clear Creek Lake (Chaffee):
VERY few birds on the lake; nothing unusual

Mt Elbert Forebay (Lake):
5 Common Mergansers...that was it!

Dillon Reservoir (Summit):
VERY few birds; nothing of note

Blue River Wastewater Treatment Plant (Summit):
Several species of dabbling ducks (no goldeneyes)
One BAT flying around the pond!!!! In the daytime!

Hopefully the upcoming weather brings more birds down into Colorado as
northern lakes/ponds start to freeze up.
