Wow what birds on the east slope. Great opportunities for sure. In the San Luis Valley, we had a brown Christmas, warm with 50 degree temps. It is no wonder that yesterday, as I was ice skating with my daughter, that 8 Sandhill Cranes flew overhead. Not totally unexpected but unusual for sure. In addition, the Monte Vista Christmas Count found 25 Brown-headed Cowbirds for a first winter record for this area. Poor skiing but the ice skating is great this year! Happy new year from the San Luis valley!
