Subject: [cobirds] Status Cranes at Monte Vista
Still waiting for the numbers of birds to arrive. Yes there are a few
cranes here and there but big numbers are yet to arrive. Water is flowing
onto the fields and wetlands now so more should be coming in daily when
winds are favorable. Forecast is for cold front to hit Tuesday so that may
slow things down for a few days.

Some cranes are in the grain fields just south of Home Lake. Others are
scattered about. A few Cackling Geese in amongst the Canadas.

Susan Hochstetler still has the Rosy-finches (Conejos County) for those
wishing to see them. She is one mile south after pavement ends on Co Hwy 15
due south of Monte Vista.

Many of the wetlands down here have closed for the waterfowl nesting season
so be aware of that in your travels here.

A Swan was reported to Lisa and I last week. It was a vague picture so we
could not determine species. Lisa went out (Blanca Wetlands now closed) and
could not re-find it. But be on the lookout in other accessible wetland
