It's nice to be back in Colorado, enjoying high temperatures in the 70s again. I spent most of today seeing old friends, but squeezed in a quick stop at Denver City Park to see what was going on at Ferril Lake.
Black-crowned Night Herons, which I appreciated since I have trouble getting clear looks at the ones who roost at the UT Southwestern Medical Center rookery back in Dallas.
Snowy Egret. Early on I thought he had no chance. But in a testament to perseverance, it eventually disappeared down the hatch. The persistent diner then didn't move for quite a while while digesting.
I only stayed for 30 minutes, but was pretty pleased with what City Park had to offer!
