Hey, everybody. I enjoyed a pleasant ramble around Cottonwood Marsh & nearby water bodies, Walden Ponds tract, Boulder County, in the 5pm hour this Sunday evening, Oct. 28. Nothing really out of the ordinary, but a nice array of seasonal stuff: 6 *cackling geese,* 2 *lesser scaups,* 1 *Virginia rail,* 1 *long-billed dowitcher,* 24 *Wilson snipes,* 1 *greater yellowlegs,* 1 *American bittern,* 1 *bald eagle,* 500+ westbound *American crows,* 1 *marsh wren, *1 *Lincoln sparrow,* and 20 westbound *great-tailed grackles.* Field notes & a few pix at eBird (where else?): https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49530046.
