Eagle Day at Pueblo Reservoir

What a beautiful day today turned out to be. After all the snow and terribly cold temps it got to the 50's this afternoon (winds made it chilly, but nothing like the below freezing we have had). Mid-morning was great, with no wind to speak of and above freezing temps. Much snow was melted with both the warmer temps and the chinook (meaning snow eating)winds that drove the increase.

Though the recent bad weather reduced the numbers, there were still around 200 or so people who attened Eagle Day activities. Eagles, at least 7 were spotted today, were fairly cooperative so most were able to view them thru spotting scopes set up for the public. I saw several adult Bald Eagles though not the immature bird that was reported by others.

I was not able to get a photo of any of these eagles as they were too distant for even my 12X digital zoom and I don't have equipment to digiscope. But I did get this photo of a female Bufflehead and other photos I will add to separate posts.
