Colorado Scouting

Just arrived in Denver ahead of the Zoothera Birding group and have a little time to scout out a few areas before we begin the 'Chicken Run" tour. The plane arrived at 1.30pm and by 2.30pm we were off to Dillon, about 90 minutes away. We followed a delightful valley surrounded by snow-topped hills and found this cracking American Dipper feeding along a little stream.

The scenery is bigger and better here than you can possibly imagine...

Just love the scenery here...

We checked out some pools for Barrow's Goldeneye, but they weren't around. But we saw Ring-necked Duck, Green-winged Teal, Grey-headed and Pink-sided Juncos, Western Osprey, immature Bald Eagle, Mountain Bluebird, plus more common species. And that was all we had time for before going to our motel.
