      On Friday, we finally found some Barrow's goldeneye in Routt County during the census period. On Stagecoach Reservoir near Oak Creek there were at least 35 Barrow's and 20 Common goldeneye, a breeding plumage western grebe, a raft or two of ringneck ducks, and a delightful surprise of a dipper working the rocks along shore near the dam (can I count that as a "shorebird?"). All waterfowl were moving around due to fisherman activity but not leaving the reservoir.

      There was also a possible three female black scoters but I would love a second opinion on the ID if someone else is in the area today.
