Sitting quietly in the grass and staying out of harms way. We spotted this good looking guy on drive through Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge on a silent spring day.

Look but don’t touch. Valuable goods contained in this pod. Natures way of keeping life going.
Both this Male House Finch and I are happy to see the return of morning light. It is nice to have a few minutes of sunshine before scurrying off to work. Me to the office and the Finch to the feeder across the year. Too bad it is short lived as we switch to daylight savings time this weekend just as the daylight comes.
These guys always seem so alert and on patrol. Furthermore, they look pretty darn tough. That said, they are one of the more skittish ducks on the ponds and getting close is always a challenge.
The local ponds are chock full of common Goldeneye in the winter but a Barrows Goldeneye is a rare visitor. Photographed along Clear Creek in Denver, CO.
