On Sunday, we wrapped up another four days at the International Sportsmen's Exposition held at the Colorado Convention Center. The weather was great and the crowds that came by our booth at the Colorado Parks & Wildlife Youth Fair were very enthusiastic about seeing the raptors up close. The star of the show, once again, was our sub-adult female bald eagle. Her presence was very impressive to all who saw her, and many noted how much she had changed since last year. Old members came by to renew and new members signed up for our exclusive Colorado Respects License plates. Thanks to everyone who made this show such a success, especially our colleagues at CPW, John Kirk and the entire ISE staff, and our exceptional docents who put in some very long hours at this international event! ...
It has been more than a month since I visited the area where the Commerce City bald eagles were hanging out at the end of November 2017. I had posted videos of them about 500 yards south of the previous nest which collapsed after their one youngster fledged. Today, I was greeted by the pair working on their brand new nest! In just over a month this massive structure has been constructed, and some finishing work is still ongoing. A pair of magpie building inspectors come in for a quick check after the female leaves. This pair of eagles is truly indefatigable, and we'll keep monitoring the site as the new breeding season approaches. Eagle Brigade: Get ready, this location will require some special work! Happy New Year!! ...
