I am sure that you are wondering why I have been quiet recently. Well that is beacuse I am writing this from Gunnison in central Colorado!! It is 7pm on Sunday afternoon and we have just finished birding.
Weather has been better that expected, high 70's for most of the time with clear blue skies although today was very windy. Seen some spectacular scenery already and we haven't got into the Rockies proper yet.
Birds have been good, 104 spp in 3 days. Highlights of chestnut sided warbler (in the hand!), mountain bluebird (fairly widespread), broad tailed hummingbirds, great horned owl. Missing waders and wildfowl on the list and struggling to ID large hawks and sparrows.
May update again if get the chance to get on the net
