More Snow

Teri and I spent a second night at Lathrop State Park in Southern Colorado, and got to watch it snow/sleet off-and-on for most of the day yesterday.  While it wasn't sticking here in the campground, the surrounding mountains got a fresh coating.

We did get a chance to hike around some and saw a few birds.  There are two lakes here and quite a few ducks. This large rock seems to be just the spot for the Double-crested Cormorants to relax.

The most common birds seem to be the Black-billed Magpies.  There always seems to be one or two nearby, keeping an eye on things.

  1. I know the magpies can be a nuisance, but I love seeing... and hearing them.

  2. It's been a long time since I've seen a magpie.

  3. I leave Texas in about 4 weeks, I am hoping all the snow will be done by then. I will be working in Cody, WY this summer. I always enjoyed seeing the magpies in CO when my daughter lived there.

    1. Hi Teri-

      It seems like you should get a chance to see magpies up in Wyoming. Safe travels when you head up that way.
