More from 2013 Camp Colorado!

Here’s another quick update from 2013 Camp Colorado in the field! Yesterday we drove down to Phantom Canyon, a TNC-owned and managed property located north of Fort Collins. After a beautiful hike down into the canyon, we had wonderful views of Lazuli Bunting, Cordilleran Flycatcher, White-throated Swift, darking beetles, dragonflies, and all kinds of groovy stuff. Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of how our day went.

After our hike we had lunch at the visitors center and then had a great discussion where campers were able to ask questions to a panel of adults with a variety of different careers relating to birds, from wildlife biologist to author to magazine editor to tour leader to marketing and partnerships director to foreign service employee to Wild Birds Unlimited franchisor (yep, the couple who started Wild Birds Unlimited joined us to share their experience).
Today is our last full day of camp and campers are headed in two directions–one group is looking forward to a beautiful hike at the Cow Creek Trail in Rocky Mountain National Park, while the other group will go to the WIld Basin area of the Park. Stay tune for a few more pictures, and some posts about Camp Colorado coming directly from campers!
