Was expecting to see these guys start arriving any day now and sure enough, found one this morning at Barr Lake State Park. Not a great spot to watch them as the nest poles are a good ways away from the trail. As a result this pic isn’t that great – I’ll have to start checking some of the better locations around.
You’ll notice the pole as this site is leaning severely. I guess the state couldn’t get the equipment needed to fix it and, oddly enough, the nest didn’t successfully fledge any little ones until last season when it became crooked. Go figure. 😉
