For some reason our red feathered friends favored their stay in Eagle County, Colorado this winter. Not having any Ornithologists on Staff here at the ECT – we have no clue why Robins would favor our County over any other, particularly the warmer ones…Curious that this fellow chose the snow rather than a perch on the wood fence. Perhaps just the way the warm sunlight reflected off the snow at that spot…From 24FEB (today) it’s exactly 24 more days till the Spring Equinox this year.
Congrats are in order for Eagle County (Eagle Vail) resident – 18 year old – Mikaela Shiffrin – who won an Olympic Gold Medal in the Women’s Slalom last Friday. The ECT would also like to congratulate Mikaela’s parents who (no doubt) will find Mikaela’s new commercial endorsements – helpful in dealing with Mikaela’s upcoming College tuition costs.
