Apres Ski Patching

Cutting short a long weekend in Aspen to get to grips with the forecast awesome movement of wildfowl from the mainland was probably a mistake. A light covering of ice thinner than the whip on a Cafe Latte just didn't produce. Two Grey Plovers, a few Dunlin and a single Grey Heron along the Malibu Lagoon beach was little reward for missing the skiing.

A switch to searching drainage ditches for displaced Jack Snipe produced a single Common Snipe and best bird of the morning a Brown Rat.
