So far two local ponds continue to have some open water that is keeping some waterfowl around. There have been a good number of Common Goldeneye here this winter, including about 50 that were on Sell's Lake near the Canon City Riverwalk today. There were only 8 Northern Shovelers today though there have been up to about 20 in the past week or so at this small pond. (The Northern Shoveler in this photo is one that allows sharing shot by Mike Baird.)

A single Common Merganser was on Sell's Lake, a species that I have seen on the Arkansas River more than ponds lately. There were only 3 Canada Geese, though more would likely fly in before dark. And there were the requisite American Coots.
