The menu had more entries than the bird list. Our most entertaining observation: an Osprey that flew around the pond (down the hill) and plummeted into the pond to catch a small oval (sun?)fish. The weather -- not Colorado's usual bright blue October day. Most of the birds sneaked around. If The Big Sit! allowed, like Christmas counts, reports for three days before and after, we would increase the species count by 50% and the individuals by 4000%: on Thursday at least 5000 Sandhill Cranes flew by our house!
