Canon City update

Gosh the Bobolinks and Dickcissels at the large breeding site in the Canon City area was very active this morning. Not only were 4-5 Dickcissels singing at the same time in hearing distance, but several male Bobolinks were up singing also. There was a wonderful burst of Bobolink, Dickcissel, Western Meadowlark and Common Yellowthroat songs harmonizing for 15-20 minutes.

Also I was priviledged to see a female Bobolink who perched in the grass near the male. I thought maybe their nest was in this area but I am not sure.

Afterwards I visited the Canon City Riverwalk to see if there were any Willow Flycatchers still singing. I didn't hear any but there were several Indigo and Lazuli Buntings singing up a storm. I also saw the male Indigo/Lazuli hybrid with the white belly and otherwise blue feathers.
