Western Colorado 2010
Greetings from Frigid River City! Per reports to WSBN and other sources, it appears that 304 species were observed on the West Slope during 2010, which is about average for the last several years.
There is currently very little open water in the valley, and it looks like a delicate state of dynamic equilibrium is being maintained [at small openings in the ice] by ambient conditions vs. heat generated by the few remaining waterfowl. Yeeeouch!
Aren’t birds conscious of pain?
