Nature Walks – A Small Sample of Some of Our Beautiful Birds

You have heard me say many times how fortunate I am to live in such a beautiful state. We have so many wonderful things and such an abundance of wildlife all around. We also have many different types of beautiful birds flying all around our Rocky Mountain State, many of which often stop by our lakes and in my own backyard too. This is just a small sampling of some of our beautiful, colorful birds. We have big birds and little birds. We have shore birds and mountain birds and everything in between. And they all call Colorado home.

We have quite a few species of swallows. This is a Barn Swallow.

These are Cliff Swallows.

We see Red-Winged Black birds all over the place. They are so pretty and have such an interesting song.

We also have Belted Kingfishers,

Northern Flickers,


Common Grackles.

House Finches,

Cassin’s Finches,

Says’ Phoebes,

American Kestrels,

Blue Jays,

Red-Bellied Woodpeckers,

Clark’s Nutcrackers,


and American Goldfinches.

We also have a large variety of Hawks and Owls and oh so much more.

I have always been a bird lover, as well as an animal lover in general. My dad and I used to love watching all the birds together. At first, I just admired them. Then once I started really getting into photography, I started capturing them with my lens. And from there, I was seeing so many beautiful birds, that I had to invest in bird books so I could start identifying them all too. I am having so much fun not only seeing and photographing all my birds, but also learning more about them all the time. I will keep sharing my birds, as well as all my other wild Colorado friends, as long as you like seeing them. I hope you love them as much as I do. πŸ™‚
