Winter Waterfowl Count!

Each year, around the state, a bunch of folks get up at 0-dark-early, bundle up, and go visit frozen lakes and ponds. They are participating in the Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) annual Midwinter Waterfowl Count. The count provides a yearly pulse check on the state’s waterfowl. Ducks, geese, swans, coots, cranes, herons, whatever! This year an interesting surprise popped up—the sighting of a rare Brant goose (blown in from the west coast).
