Linda Mirro got this closeup of the Silverthorne ospreys.

Spring in Colorado is like know other! This Osprey has a giant nest about 1 mile north on HWY 9 from our Lodge.  The mother and father catch fish from the surrounding river and ponds and then carry them back to their chicks in the giant nest.A  Litter of fox can be seen down by the Ace Hardware store in 2009. This is where we saw our 1st BLACK fox…simply amazing. We brought the kids down there each day to watch them play near their den.

Then there is the Red Fox that visitis our Lodge’s deck each late afternoon! I know this is hard to believe but it is true!
