I had a couple of target species in mind when I visited Colorado. But since it was a business trip, I had a very limited time to go out. One of the species that I was hoping to get that would be relatively close to Boulder, but up in the mountains was the Mountain Bluebird. This male was found on Bald Mountain at an elevation of 7000ft above sea level.
In Colorado, they will migrate to the lower planes in the winter and head up to the mountains for the breeding season.
Be sure to visit Wild Bird Wednesday this week!
