Despite the record-breaking cold and snow earlier this week, shorebird migration is still in progress in SE Colorado. Today, I observed two American Golden-Plovers (foraging and in flight) and a Dunlin at Adobe Creek Reservoir (Blue Lake). They were on the north side of the south lake associating with at least 10 species of shorebirds. From the east side of the lake, west of the boat ramp, look for a two-track heading to the channel separating the north lake (mostly in Kiowa County) and the south lake (entirely in Bent County). Drive south as far as you feel comfortable, and scan the north end of the lake. A scope will be helpful.
