Another Colorado Outing

Grandpa got one more family outing in Colorado, this time a level one around several lakes at Pella Crossing. Despite the heat, I was determined to take my new camera and birding lens. Luckily after nearly a week, my blood oxygen was finally beginning to return to normal.

Although we didn’t see a lot of birds, I was glad that Sydney spotted this Osprey diving into the lake and that I was able to get a shot of it returning to its nest with its catch.

I’m sure Jen was glad to see this While Pelican, probably her favorite bird.

A pair of vultures

even checked us, or the nearby parachutists, out. It’s the first time I can remember seeing vultures in Colorado.
