Saturday night we went back down to a local fox den. The babies did not come out that we saw, but momma was there and headed out to pick up some dinner.
All in All, a good day at the Nature Center.
Our favorite park here in Colorado Springs now has a fox den and a beaver house. Last night both were out.
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.
There have been some Pelicans hanging out at Fountain Creek Nature Center. I went down there at lunch today. I guess I can probably blame “finding nemo”, whenever I do a pelican voice in my head, it has to have an Australian accent.
We met downtown to walk the dogs after work. We saw out first beaver of the year. He/She was a baby, really small. We’ll try and get back down there at dusk this weekend and see if we can see how many are in this years “litter”. The Heron let me watch him for a little while, no koi while I was watching. Taylor took the dogs pictures, with my 7D and 40mm.
My favorite pair of Hawks are back on their nest near my office. He did his usual behavior, yell at me a few times and then circle overhead to see what I was up to. I don’t think they have laid eggs yet, both were on the move at the same time.
On the way home from seeing the Williamson’s at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, we stopped by the beaver pond. Across the creek from the pond is the Colorado College field. They had the lights on tonight, and the trees around the pond still had leaves. It was like the largest light painting ever.
Friday night was supposed to be a trip down town to check out the fan fest for the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. No dogs allowed so we ended up down at the park walking the dogs. enjoy!
We walked the dogs this afternoon at the park. Herons, Butterflies, Hummingbirds and Bees.
