Pueblo Preponderance

Yep, Rocky and I went to Pueblo again.  Been every month so far this year.  We like it down there.  Usually sunny and warm.  Certainly was this time.  Got up to 74 one afternoon and unlimited sun.  Just gorgeous.  Not a whole lot of birds or wildlife, however.  Big flock of mountain bluebirds in the campground, and the usual curved-bill thrasher.  Took a pic of an oriole nest.  Can't tell if this one is made exclusively of old fishing line, but many if not most are anymore.  However, at least around Lake Pueblo there are lots of old yucca plants that have decayed to leave big heaps of yucca fibers that orioles could use for nest making.
