  • Goshawks again nesting in the...

    (Reprinted from March 23, 2009)

    While I was visiting Bosque del Apache, an exceptionally fine photograph of a northern goshawk was printed in the Community Eye feature of the Canyon Courier. It was taken by Richard Gristak on Bear Mountain. I was pleased to see this beautiful bird’s photo for two reasons: one, because I have not seen a goshawk in the area for some time, and secondly, because I had been wondering what hawk was making the birds at my feeder so antsy.

  • Getting down to business on the...

    EVERGREEN — Like the majority of the prep baseball teams across Colorado, Evergreen headed to a warmer climate for spring break.

    The Cougars took their 2-1 record to Arizona. Evergreen coach Steve Jones is able to get plenty of quality time on the baseball field in 80-degree weather instead worrying about snow accumulations.

  • Rock squirrels are rarely found...

    (Reprinted from March 20, 2010)

    It was shortly after we moved to Colorado that my late husband and I were birding one morning in Red Rocks Park, and we saw our first rock squirrel.

    Rock squirrels are the biggest of all the many ground-squirrel clan, and despite the fact that they are ground squirrels, they are quite capable of climbing over rocks and boulders and even well into trees as if they thought they were tree squirrels.

  • Dillon ready to be the focal...

    BOULDER — What a ride it has been for Claudia Dillon the past four months.

    Evergreen’s 6-foot-2 freshman helped the Cougars’ volleyball team advance to the Class 4A state semifinals at the Denver Coliseum in November. Dillon was again a key cog as Evergreen’s girls basketball team had its best season in the program’s history, making it to the 4A state championship game March 12 at the Coors Events Center on the University of Colorado campus.

  • Evergreen girls claw to state...

    BOULDER — One call never determines the outcome of a state championship game.

    However, the offensive foul on Evergreen freshman Claudia Dillon with 5 minutes, 49 seconds left in the Class 4A girls basketball title game March 12 at the Coors Events Center undoubtedly played a significant role.

  • Evergreen state runner-up in 4A...

    BOULDER — The third time wasn’t the charm for Evergreen’s girls basketball team Saturday afternoon at the Coors Events Center.

    In Evergreen’s third meeting this season with Valor Christian, a private school in Highlands Ranch that is a member of the Class 4A Jeffco League, the Eagles completed a 3-0 sweep of the Cougars this season. Valor claimed its second straight girls hoops trophy in the 55-40 victory March 12 on the campus of the University of Colorado.

  • Buzzer-beater sends Evergreen to...

    BOULDER — Evergreen senior Logan Newhall’s layup over the outstretched arms of Sand Creek’s 6-foot-2 Liah Davis sent the Cougars into uncharted territory.

  • Sand Creek provides plenty of...

    EVERGREEN — Sand Creek has an impressive resumé heading into the Class 4A girls basketball state semifinal showdown against Evergreen.

    The Scorpions (24-1 record) is on a 24-game winning streak since losing their opener to Poudre back on Dec. 3. Holy Family, another 4A Final Four qualifier, is the only team Sand Creek didn’t defeated by double-digit points this season. Not to mention, Sand Creek was the 4A state runner-up a year ago.

  • Evergreen takes defensive road...

    EVERGREEN — Defense wins championships.

    If Evergreen’s girls basketball team can duplicate the defensive performance it had March 4 against Class 4A Jeffco rival D’Evelyn, the Cougars might very well be playing for a 4A state championship Saturday, March 12, in Boulder.
