I stopped by Susan Hochstetler's place this week (Conejos County) and observed the wonderful assortment of Rosy-finches at her feeders. I was able to see and photograph all three species including coastal and inland races of Gray-crowned. We were wondering if we ever get "Bering Sea" race of Gray-crowned in Colorado. Anyone seen them?
Susan is open to birders. She is an Amish lady and her husband Martin is ill. You can see these birds by going south from Monte Vista on Hwy 15 until the pavement ends. Then go another 1 mile and watch for her place on the east side of the road. Hers is the place with numerous feeders out.
I know Susan spends enormous amounts on bird seed. If you are so inclined, please consider a donation to help her out.
