Castle Rock Prairie Dogs: A Visual Update

3 Feb

Sunday, several concerned activists visited the site of the proposed “Largest Mall in America”, also known as the planned killing field of thousands of Black-tailed Prairie Dogs and the destruction of their habitat. While we surveyed the site of further carnage, a friend dropped by.

Prairie dogs give me life. They feed you too; you just don't know it.

You might not like Prairie Dogs as much as you should (they’re not a pest, and in fact serve as a keystone species), but come on, shouldn’t we pay attention when the Bald Eagle also lives here?

    A few years back I was a member of a group that tried to get confirmed sighting of eagle nesting sites in order to divert a highway. Finding and positive,y identifying where that (and other) Eagle is nesting might be a good use of someones time. I don’t know how far of an exclusion zone exists around the nest, but if it’s on the bluffs above that site Id bet it’s within it.

      Thanks, Jim. Good advice, and we will try whatever we can to make a difference here. And yeah, the eagle was on the bluffs right to the east of the site.

    “Shouldn’t we pay attention when the Bald Eagle also lives here?”

    It seems difficult to discuss the Bald Eagle without mentioning that it is a symbol of the US. Is this part of the reasoning for suggesting that special attention should be paid to it?
