Adams Open Space, Fountain, 6/20/13

A small (40 or so acres) open space in downtown Fountain, CO (access behind the library).  Very pleasant - the stream was crystal clear - maybe a good spot to check during migration.  I suspect the Kites are breeding here.  Low traffic while we were there - a teenaged boy who said he was looking for  Wild Turkeys with babies he'd seen another day and snakes and that he wants to be a herpetologist when he grows up, and a few high school kids jogging for cross country practice.  I think it isn't a well known park.
