Predawn light

It’s 6:48 AM and I’m driving south on I-25. The Denver skyline is a shimmering silvery glow from the reflection of the predawn sky, enhanced by the still twinkling lights of the city. One of the prettiest sights I’ve seen in a while. A moment later that bliss is shattered by the stiff winged flight of a Great Horned Owl crossing the interstate. It’s the first bird of the day, and a new bird – 58th /57th species of the newborn year. I’m headed down to Castle Pines to pick up my brother, Bill. We’re off to Divide, CO to try for rosy finches and afterwards work for the Golden-crowned Sparrow at Red Rocks.
