From July 8-13, 2012, eighteen young birders from across the U.S. and parts of Canada arrived in Estes Park, Colorado, to participate in the American Birding Association's annual young birder camp, Camp Colorado. We visited many great locations, including Rocky Mountain National Park, Pawnee National Grasslands, and Phantom Canyon, saw lots of life birds, and made many new friendships. The campers will be telling you more about the experience in their own words in the coming weeks, but for the time being, here are a few of their favorite photos:
