Leave Them Birds Alone

The City of Boulder wants to destroy the South Boulder Wetlands, in exchange for CU agreeing to their completely insane green energy plan.

    Tony – what’s the likelihood that this crazy plan gets approved?

    • tonyheller says:

      The recent city council election made the development less likely, but the nutty power plan more likely. The new councilors have good hearts, but are working with with gross misinformation about climate and energy.

      And where would those who approve this crazy plan be living ? There must be a windmill free spot in their plan.

      • R. Shearer says:

        No new wind turbines would be installed near Boulder, rather Boulder citizens would simply pay higher rates for “green” electricity “produced” elsewhere. Special “friends” of the city, such as bond underwriters, utility consultants, etc. will be compensated for their efforts.

    Very likely….Alberta Gov’t is putting out tenders for more windmills in Southern Alberta….we MUST get off of cheap, reliable, efficient sources such as coal…i’m just waiting for my electrical rates to ‘necessarily skyrocket’…

    The southern alberta area used to have very good views of the mountains…not anymore…

    Hi Tony,

    Is that first shot a merlin?

    Thanks,

      I think it is a Ferriginous Hawk

        Red-tailed Hawk

          Agree, it is a Red-tailed Hawk.

          For future reference Tony, from this angle you can see it has bands on its tail (which is also a faint rufous color), dark cheeks contrasting with a white throat and – in this case quite faint – ‘belly band’ of marking contrasting with the white breast above. Looks like a juvenile.

          Red-tailed Hawk plumage is extremely variable.

          The 5th photo is also a Red-tailed Hawk and when they’re flying they are much easier to identify. See that dark edge on the front of its wing (underside)? That is THE field mark that identifies all Red-tails.

          That male Mountain Bluebird photo is spectacular! You really captured the color and it really pops against that background.

        • tonyheller says:

          Interesting. I hadn’t seen the Red Tailed Hawks for over a month.

        Nice photos!
