Was just out in Colorado for 5 days on a photo adventure with my Dad for the second year in a row. It’s an easy direct flight from Hartford into Denver and the variety of habitats that you can experience keep us occupied. We ventured into the farmlands of the Lamar area, where you can see for miles down a road. Close to the Kansas border, these areas can be hotspots for a number of different raptors including a variety of hawks, owls and the massive Golden Eagles. We even had success with a pair of Great Horned Owls for the 2nd year in a row! Then we headed up to Rocky Mountain National Park for the second half of the trip. I could stare at those mountains all day and never get tired of that view. Somehow we were able to find the tiny Pygmy Owl again in the dense forest, which is the equivalent of finding a needle in a haystack. Hopefully next Winter we can make it 3 years in a row!
