Drive Up Rist Canyon

February 3, 2017

Another snowstorm was predicted for the Front Range and mountains just to the west.  Rebecca Kosten and I drove up Rist Canyon (Larimer) before heading for the warmth of home.

On the drive up Rist Canyon, Rebecca spotted a Northern Pygmy-Owl in the willows just four feet off the ground.  We were just west of the old wooden fence line.

An American Three-toed Woodpecker was along the south side of Rist Canyon Road and just east of Whale Rock (100 feet east of Whale Rock Road).

Temperatures were only 25 degrees back in Denver.  We passed on any additional birding.
