Typical Colorado weather. Sunday we had a snow storm that dropped 5 inches of snow, and now almost all the snow is gone, at least around our lakes. In fact, not only was the snow gone, but the weather was back up into the low 60’s and the sun was shining brightly in the blue, blue skies above. It was a perfect day for a walk.
We still have that one turtle who is just as confused as the rest of us are. He still refuses to give up and loves to sun himself on his “log”, even though one of the lakes still has a thin layer of ice on it.
The geese were out in droves, as they usually are.
And we had a lot of ducks out and about too. We had our normal mallards, and even our newest residents, the redheads and the hooded mergansers.
But we have some new kids on the “block” too, or should I say new ducks on the lake. Our new neighbors are the ring-necked ducks.
I think they will fit in nicely. They are a great new addition to our beautiful area. Welcome to the neighborhood.
