Couldn’t resist a return visit to Spring Park reservoir this evening. Calm, fair weather conditions prevailed..
Highlights included ... still many ducks and coots.. plus
· Common Loon 2
· Barrow’s Goldeneye several
· Common Merganser female (first merganser of any spp for several days)
· Bonaparte’s Gull 10
· Franklin’s Gull 2
· Ring-billed Gull 2
· Willet 3
· Several unidentified shorebirds at north end (too far to identify from road)
Stunning views of mountains and forests buried in fresh snow lit by a glorious sunset
Good birding all !
