Am I Blue?? or Pink??

We drove out through the foothills of the San Juan Mountains to see what we could find. We saw two types of Bluebirds, Mountain and Western.

We found this Green-tailed Towhee feeding near the Western Bluebird.

While driving alongside some cliffs, we saw this Great Horned Owl tucked up in a sheltered spot.

And we got outstanding looks at a pair of Lewis's Woodpeckers near the Alamosa River.

It is still getting near freezing each night so migrants are just beginning to show up.  Stay tuned for more!
