Camp Colorado is in full swing this week in Estes Park, Colorado. Twenty campers from around the country are enjoying the beautiful birds and habitats of the Colorado Rockies and Grasslands. We are having a bit of Internet connectivity trouble and I am writing this from my phone’s tiny keyboard (which should explain any typos!) so for now here’s a picture of some campers checking out a lizard yesterday at the Pawnee National Grassland in northeastern Colorado. Other highlights includes Golden Eagle, Mountain Plover, McCown’s Longspur, and the ABA Bird of the Year, Common Nighthawk. (That’s not to mention the prairie rattlesnake, of course!)

We’re headed up to the alpine tundra today with dreams of White-tailed Ptarmigan, Brown-capped Rosy-Finches, Clarks’s Nutcracker, and maybe some elk. Wish up luck, and stay tuned for more pictures and camp stories to come!
