Highlights from Dec 6 Bird Walk to Bear Creek Lake Park

We had a very nice morning at Bear Creek Lake Park (BCLP), though we only tallyied five species of ducks.  The wintering ducks have pretty much moved into our area again, and generally you can expect to see twelve or more species in a morning at this time of year.  So, it continues to be an interesting puzzle as to why some places seem to have a greater diversity, e.g. Harriman Lake and the South Platte River out in Commerce City,...

Highlights from November 1 Bird Walk to South Platte Park

A great morning down along the South Platte, where ten of us tallied 40 species (see list below). Highlights included eleven species of ducks.

Except for the Shovelers, all the other species looked to already be in prime breeding plumage – quite spectacular! And, here’s the good news,...
