I often walk along the Poudre river in the morning and I’m occasionally delighted to see a bird or fish or some other critter happen along. In fact, my mom and I were talking about ipods once and she said, “So what do you listen to when you’re walking?” (She knows I don’t have an ipod and she wondered if I used a walkman or something like that.) I replied, “The birds.” It took her a couple of minutes to realize that I meant I listen to the birds as they sing. Along the Poudre, you can pretty much count on being serenaded during your entire walk.
Well, yesterday I was treated to much more than that. I don’t know what the deal was, but there was an amazing array of birds as I walked yesterday morning. Perhaps some of them flew down from the High Park fire area.
I’ve spent some time googling for bird idents, and I’ve labeled the birds with what I *think* they are. If I’m wrong, feel free to correct me. 🙂
