For the 3rd Winter in a row I headed out to Colorado with my Dad last week to photograph a variety of hawks, eagles, and owls for a 5 day stretch. We landed in Denver and then began our drive to the Southeast part of the state towards the Kansas border, where many different raptors spend the Winter months. They’re drawn to this habitat with vast open farmlands stocked with plenty of prairie dogs & field mice to feed on. Always love to photograph some of the scenery as well, even snapping some shots of my favorite cottonwood tree that I captured on each of our trips. We ended the trip up in Colorado Springs, shooting sunrise at The Garden of the Gods Park before we headed to the airport in the afternoon. Until next Winter!
