Hi all

Despite being insanely busy, have managed to snatch some time to go birding this last week
Some of the highlights

Grand Junction Wildlife Area (Mesa) – Thursday (thanks Mike, Eileen)
White-throated Sparrow 1
Northern Harrier 1
Evening Grosbeak 1

Horsethief Canyon (Mesa) Thursday
Least Sandpiper 7
American Pipit 1
Wilson’s Snipe 5
Killdeer 3
Rough-legged Hawk 1

Carbondale Coryell Ranch (Garfield) Thursday

Carbondale - Powers art centre (Garfield) ongoing
Rough-legged hawk 1-2 (still today, Sunday 28)

Snowmass Ski Area (Pitkin)
100+ Brown-capped Rosy Finches - most days – latest Wednesday
Porcupine – on 17th

Carbondale - Crystal River valley by Hwy133 (Garfield/Pitkin County line) most days – but none Sat or Sun
Snow Goose 1-2
Canada Geese – up to 700
Cackling Geese – up to 9
Bald Eagle and Golden Eagle on roadside Mule Deer carcass last Sunday
Rough-legged Hawk – 1 today (Sun 28)

No matter how dry you think it is here, just be glad you don’t live in Cape Town, South Africa..
Looking very likely to be the first major city in the world to run out of water – in just 10 weeks – or less

Good birding all
Best wishes
