      Hi all

       

      Enjoyed driving 22 miles up the Fryingpan out of Basalt today.. No snow on the road – even at 8,900 feet !

       

      The Long-tailed Duck has left Ruedi reservoir, in fact - no ducks on there at all,  although there are two decent sized areas of open water on the reservoir, near the dam, and a tiny bit of open stream at the inlet  that held a Dipper

       

      The Fryingpan river was much more productive,

       

      3 Barrow’s Goldeneyes (one adult drake) at mm 4.5

      2 adult Bald Eagles

      Plenty of Dippers

      +5 Bighorn Sheep

       

      On Lake Christine, in Basalt: 95% open

      10 Buffleheads

      130 Ring-necked Ducks

      5 American Wigeon

       

      Nearby, a  Great Blue Heron on the pond by Taqueria El Nopal,  Basalt

       

      Back home our Lesser Goldfinches continue, but no sign of yesterday’s Merlin

       

      Good birding all
