Barrow's Goldeneyes etc, Carbondale, Garfield Cty
Spent a few hours birding this morning, Sunday, with Tom McConnell around the Glenwood Springs area in the aftermath of yesterday’s snowstorm. Massive variation in snowfall, with none along Hwy82 on SE side of Glenwood, but up to 8inches in town and along I70..
Best birds were
10 Barrow’s Goldeneyes (2 adult males) at Coryell Ranch Carbondale (this afternoon, after I left Tom and headed home– sorry Tom!)
Northern Shrike – near Rifle
Only raptors – 3 Bald Eagles, a few Red-tails and American Kestrels, mainly along the I70/Colorado River corridor.
Good birding all
