Newest Bird Sitings at the Beach

We have Birds around us all the time in the Ft. Morgan area. Usually they are Shore birds, Pelicans, Herons, Cranes that sort of traditional beach bird. We also have your normal smaller birds Cardinals, Finches, Sparrows, Swallows. In general a beautiful collection of fine feathered friends. We have had more than our share of adventures with them as well.
Last winter was a sort of Pelican rescue, when we found an injured Pelican blowing in the wind around the parking lot. My Dad and I managed to throw a blanket over it and secure it's beak. Then we bundled it into my car for the 40 minute drive to the vet. You get all sorts of interesting looks driving down the road with a pelican in your back seat!
The most recent adventure happened to one of our winter guests. Mr. Tom, he and his wife were enjoying an afternoon indoors, because it was windy, and kinda cool outside. They looked out their sixth floor balcony window and saw something extraordinary. A hawk was resting after fighting the strong winds. It landed on the balcony railing outside their condo. After some stealthy photo taking from behind a sofa, they ventured out from behind the cover and walkedright to the window, and continued to snap photos.
Come and have an adventure of your own at Ft. Morgan, where the wild life shows off, and the sunsets are amazing.
