Barr Lake State Park – May 24, 2019

I spent a few hours at Barr Lake the other day.  I came across some Canada Goose Families, and I saw the Bale Eagle nest with the parents tending to the Eaglets.  I didn’t only see babies…I also saw so many other beautiful birds, and so may wonderful views.

Barr Lake is one of my favorite places to spend time. The lake is huge, with an 8.8 mile trial that circumvents the water.  The park is so large that even when there is a big event happening you can find solitude.  Over 370 species of birds have been sighted in the park.  At any given time, there are different birds to be seen.  There is a breeding pair of Bald Eagles that stays at the park all year.  In the winter, it’s not uncommon to see 40-60 Bald Eagles fighting for fish in the lake.

I don’t always get great photos of the birds, but there are usually one or two that I can live with–thanks to DSLR cameras!  Thanks for taking a look.
