Western Bluebirds today

Today was a brilliantly sunny day with temps rising just above freezing. Though the snow was starting to melt, it was still quite beautiful as can be seen in the top photo. That is the famous Pikes Peak in the background. I took this photo from the start of the foothills just southwest of Florence. This is where the land starts rising above the Arkansas River valley around Florence into the foothills. As can be seen, this is pinyon-juniper habitat.

I returned to the location where I saw the Eastern Bluebirds yesterday, but they were not there. However, I found lots of Western Bluebirds south of Florence including the one in the bottom photo.


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