Just a few things in our backyard in the past couple of weeks.
A limpkin and his reflection trying to find snails.
A young red shoulder hawk landed on the boardwalk right in front of me. He sat there for a while looking around until someone walked up to him from the other side of the boardwalk and off he went.
Another adult red shoulder hawk up in a tree.

We did not stay here during our trip to Colorado Springs in late September. We did however stop in for a quick walk around the property. It’s a beautiful spot with the mountains in the background. Too bad it was drizzling during our entire walk around. I’d like to get back here some day to stay.
The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs has a free car museum right on the property. We stopped by the hotel to look around and found the museum. It was a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon. They had so many different types of transportation from stagecoaches to race cars. Lots of history in this museum.
What a bargain!
On the way out of the hotel, we had to stop for some wildlife traffic.

I caught a quick glimpse of a black bellied whistling duck family. They were passing through under the boardwalk and headed into the swamp. They paused for a few minutes and I snapped the above. The babies are so cute. They look like little bumble bees.
