      Birders:

      There are large numbers of waterfowl -in the thousands - on upper Holter Lake at the Gates-to-the-Mountains area. They are a ways out because of an ice shelf along the road so a scope and good afternoon light are necessary for good viewing. Notable among the good numbers of mostly diving species are Barrow's Goldeneye (in the hundreds), large rafts of scaup (likely both species), and 14 trumpeter swans on the far side of the lake - playing "reveille". If this warmish weather keeps up for the next several days, the ice should melt enough from the current so that the birds may end up quite a bit closer to the road.
