Hi all

Saturday ... Weld CR 61/74, Weld CR 59 marsh ponds (just south of Hwy 34),
Woods Lake on north, playas at Weld CR 122/77 and 116/77, and Weld CR 94/37
gravel pit all have exposed shorelines and sandbar now. Best bets for
shorebirds at the moment. Latham and Beebe-areas bone dry. These water
bodies are still full: Crom, Cozzens, and Stewart's (both bodies).

- 11 Stilt Sandpiper, avocets, greater yellowlegs, stilts and
Long-billed Dowitcher at Weld CR 61/74 ponds
- Baird's and Least Sandpiper at Weld CR 116/77 playa
- 10 Chestnut-collared Longspur (2-3 families on road) along Weld CR 45
btw 112 and 116. Badger pair (photos) has burrow in NE of intersection not
too far off road
- Burrowing Owl (): Weld CR 47 .5m S of 46 on W (2+); Weld CR 33 btw
98/100 (2+); Weld CR 49 .5m S of 102 on E (6+); and Weld CR 59 .25m N of 74
on W (1+)
- Wild Turkey mom with 11 poults in tow

We've had a family of Loggerhead Shrike attacking everything in the
yard-which is cool to watch for last 1-2 weeks.

Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn
