I think the above are three different black-crowned night herons?
Not sure what kind of duck this is?
I think this is a tree swallow but not sure - it was pretty far off....
It was getting dark so these pictures are pretty bad, but I believe this is a great egret, which kind of surprised me. It was similar in size to a great blue heron and had black legs.

Muscoco Mountain is a North Cheyenne Canyon favorite of mine - lots of people go up Mt. Cutler, but many do not know of the turn-off to Muscoco - it does require a bit of climbing so people do not know the trail is there unless they've done some research with maps or Internet. The one downside to this hike is that you have to either make it out and back, or you have to walk on the road back to Mt. Cutler's lot - we've always opted for the road, which is not ideal, but shorter and more appealing than out and back.
