- More open water, and lots of ducks! More pintail there than I have seen in Colorado in the last couple years, I think. Lots of mallards, GW teal, common merganser, ring-necked ducks, and redheads. I only saw one cinnamon teal today, but I did see a hen scaup that I am pretty sure was a greater, due to the low, rounded head. She never got close enough for a good photo but I am downloading the camera as I write this to see if the long-range shots are worth anything.No blue-winged teal today, alas.Definitely worth getting out of the house this weekend and taking a look.Also got to watch a GB heron at Confluence get some lunch today in the now-open water on the edge of the lake. And there was a prairie falcon in a tree about half a mile west of Eckert.Dennis GarrisonPaonia
