Other birds of interest on Canon City Riverwalk

Some of the other birds of interest on the Canon City Riverwalk this week include a pair of Black Phoebes that apparently stopped for a few days to feast on the hatching Caddis flies and other mayflies. Black Phoebes are seen occasionally along parts of the Canon City Riverwalk as they move around seeking nesting locations.

The next photo is of one of the pair of Mountain Chickadees that has also been feeding in the same area as the phoebes. They fed in trees that are budding out along with dozens of Yellow-rumped Warblers, a few Orange-crowned and Virginia Warblers, at least one Tennessee Warbler, a Plumbeous Vireo and a Northern Parula.

Other birds the last two days included at least one Hermit Thrush and a singing White-throated Sparrow. The Eastern Phoebes and Carolina Wrens that have been on the Riverwalk added their songs to the chorus.

The bottom photo is of a red fox that stopped to check out a bunch of us birders. The light dots around it are the caddis flies that are reflecting the light.
