Common Goldeneye bonanza

I had read that the population of Common Goldeneyes had increased significantly in Colorado a few weeks ago and shortly afterward found a good number at Brush Hollow reservoir. Today I was surprised to find about 20 Common Goldeneyes in the west pond of the Canon City Valco Cement. This is the Valco pond that is easily visible from the public roadside.

Though we often have some Common Goldeneye in Canon City, we usually don't have this many at this location which is a flooded gravel pit. Read more about Common Goldeneye
