Canon City Riverwalk

I walked parts of both the eastern and western sections of the Canon City Riverwalk sevral times this past week. I have seen the Carolina Wren on one occasion, and only heard it on the other occasion, when I birded the bluff trail on the western section and got the bottom photo. This is indicative of how this bird often hides in clear view by signing from a perch that is behind a lot of branches, etc that can make it difficult to find. Double-click the photo for a better look.
The Black-capped Chickadees seem to be paired-up, appearing to forage together. White-breasted Nuthatches are heard making their "beedie, beedie, beedie" calls. American Goldfinch chatter away in the canopy. There are more ducks, mostly Mallards and American Wigeon in the Arkansas River along the riverwalk. And the male Red-winged Blackbirds like the one in the top photo are taking on their alternate (breeding)plumage as they sing.
