at Sweitzer and Colorado 141. Then this morning before I left, I read
Forrest's posting about the Routt birds he and Coen found. I headed
At Stagecoach I easily refound the two Surf Scoters, Horned Grebe and
Barrow's Goldeneyes. I also discovered a Greater Scaup. I saw 7
California Gulls and 1 Ring-billed Gull but could find the previous

Way too much waterfowl and bad light at Catamount. Despite a two hour
search I did not refind the Red-breasted Merganser. The 4 Tundra Swans
were a nice bonus.
