Are There Any Birds Up Here?

There were birds about, we were serenaded nearly all day with the songs of the Townsend’s Solitaire.We had spectacular mountain views.
We were quite entertained by this flock of Pine Siskins feeding on the fir cone seeds. They finally flew in close enough to give us a good look.
Mountain Chickadees were everywhere. Busily feeding non-stop in the oak brush.
This was one of the biggest juniper trees I’ve seen. Look at this gorgeous bark.
And now for a little side note. This little water bottle was part of my registration package at the Midwest Birding Symposium. This is just the beginning of it’s adventures that I will document.
MBSB (Midwest Birding Symposium Bottle) on the rim of Castlewood Canyon during our lunch break. The Rimrock Canyon trail ended and it was time to descend back to the canyon bottom via the Dam trail.And here is what’s left of the dam:Apparently this dam was built in the 1890’s and burst in 1933, killing 2 people and sending a 15 foot wall of water into Denver. Here is what’s left.Now we’re back at the bottom and we’ll continue our adventure tomorrow.
