A new president elected, nice weather for the inauguration, and it was beautiful here in Colorado, a balmy 65 degrees out here, so we went up to the Rocky Mtns to see what we could see -
A bighorn sheep grazing in the grass - It's so rare to see them and being that close to the road too!
a Magpie singing for us
There were about 15 or 20 bull elk hanging out, with a couple of bull's wanting to tussle.
On the drive I told my 86 year old mom that it was reported that out of 8 years in office George Bush spent 3 full years either at Camp David or on his ranch in Crawford Texas on 'vacation'. She replied "Good, imagine what more he could have done if he was working all that time" Gotta love her! Here's a picture takenin 2008 in Redondo Beach.
We put a birdfeeder out in the back yard and so far other than some sparrows and finches, this is the most unique bird that has used the feeder.
A yellow headed black bird. You can tell its female as its not just the head that is yellow, the female has the neck and breast yellow also.
This is the very rare red throated hummingbird that was at Phil and Bobby's house on Saturday. There is only one like it in the world. Bird Watching Magazine will be calling any day now to make me their staff photographer.
Really? There are lots of these? oh well..
