Cottonwood Hollow/Riverbend Ponds Natural Areas
October 19, 2013. Leader: John Shenot
A small group of chapter members enjoyed a beautiful fall morning close to home. We observed nearly 40 species of birds, including a large number of White-crowned Sparrows and a few locally less common species: a Wilson's Snipe, a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, 2 Mountain Bluebirds, and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. This was an unusually late date for observing a gnatcatcher in Larimer County, if not a county record. We were also treated to close-up views of a mink!
