Yesterday Taylor and I went in search of birds.
All in All, a good day at the Nature Center.
okay, so we went to the hummingbird festival. We saw lots of cool stuff, but sadly I only took pictures of the awesome birds from the Pueblo Raptor Center. In my defense, I got some REALLY good images.
My favorite pair of Red Tails are back on their nest. Here is a few shots of them, and their neighbor from down the road.
I spotted this Juvenile Red Tailed Hawk today at lunch near Quail Lake.
My Sister in law got me a corn cob holder to feed the local squirrels after they ran off with our suet cage. Laurie has been feeding the local Blue Jays.
Tonight my wife caught this guy (or gal) sitting on the neighbors roof.
I went over to Starsmore today at lunch. Have not been over there in a while. It’s a very sunny day today, so I knew I’d have lots and lots of lunch. The hummingbirds were out in full force.
We actually got up and going at a decent time today, that’s pretty amazing for us on a Saturday. We got some stuff finished up in the yard, Home Depot installed the new microwave, and I packed a lunch and we hit the road. We ended up at Rampart Reservoir where we got rained on. The fire damage up there is amazing, heart breaking really for such a beautiful area. We left there, stopped in woodland park for a bit, then ended up at Manitou Lake. We saw some Pelicans, a beaver, and a few other fun birds.
I went over to the lake at lunch yesterday. There was a gentle snow coming down, and three herons were on the same end of the lake. They were more interested in the fisherman’s stringers than me, so I managed to get pretty close.
