We visited Morey Wildlife Reserve, with special permission from the city of Loveland to go completely around the pond and along the Big Thompson River. The birds apparently were a bit smarter than we were, as they kept low and quiet most of the morning.

Join me next month for a visit to JayHawker Ponds on February 19 at 9:00 AM. These ponds are southeast of Taft Avenue and First Street.
While they may still be mostly frozen, it can be a nice little area to bird.
Parking needs special attention here. DO NOT park on the south side of First Street near the gas station and car wash. Well, that is, unless you have a fondness for parking tickets. Please DO park on the north side of first street in the parking lot by the ball fields. I’ll be parking on the western edge of that area. Look for my gray Jeep Liberty. We’ll gather there, then cross at the light and walk over to the ponds. Remember to look both ways.
As before, I am not limiting the number of folks who come – though we’ll hopefully have radios next month so everyone can hear what’s going on. Please DO send me a note at
zblueheron AT gmail DOT com if you ARE attending.
All in all, a nice day for a birding adventure!
