Northern Mockingbird at Pueblo Reservoir

Late yesterday afternoon on my way to Pueblo I stopped at the Pueblo Reservoir and found this Northern Mockingbird. This species is fairly common in southeast Colo including the Pueblo area from spring through fall. However, they are pretty rare in winter.

This photo isn't great, and I had to brighten it and add contrast to even get this--but it was 5 pm when I took it and it was between dusk and dark. But the lower photo I took of the reservoir with the Wet Mountains partially obscured by clouds in the background came out much better.


Save trees in the Boreal forest for birds, not for paper--Opt out of catalogues
