INTO THE WILD

BIRDING, WILDIFE WATCHING, HERITAGE TOURS & MORE

One of my favorite things about living in Colorado is our natural lifestyle.  93% of our residents will tell you that viewing wildlife is an important part of the day to day existence here in the Centennial State.  Whether you're in the crowded Front Range metro areas, cruising through vast High Plains, navigating scenic canyons and plateaus of the Western Slope or trekking through our world-renowned High Country, there is usually wildlife to be seen and enjoyed.

Daily visits to the farm that I call home in south-central Colorado are common for a long list of critters.  Just yesterday morning a mule deer doe brought her twin fawns through our yard between the house and the barn.  Only a few days old, their spotted flanks contrasted well with the tall green grass of the pasture.  The hay field just south of our home attracts deer, year-round, and other wildlife.  The list of bird species seen in or near our yard is nearly up to 100 different kinds.  This rural agricultural setting provides outstanding habitat for a variety of species and changes with the seasons accommodating migration and then as fluctuating temperatures convince birds to journey to milder conditions,

Much of Colorado is a haven for birds, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies and other wildlife.  With over 960 different species on our inventory, this state has more wildlife diversity than any other in the country without a coastline.  So, if viewing a variety of fascinating wildlife is on your wish list, then this must be the place!  With all the other great reasons to enjoy Colorado, every year more and more visitors travel here to recreate in our wildlife friendly environments.  Visit www.colorado.com for info.

Nearly 30 different Wildlife Festivals are offered annually, throughout the state.  Colorado has 26 designated Scenic and Historic Byways that are meccas for amateur historians and wildlife watchers, alike.  Our communities carefully protect their parks and open spaces, providing more and better habitat for critters across the state..  The Colorado Birding Trail highlights hundreds of wonderful sites to be a birder.  Help us keep these areas protected.  If you visit, be respectful!
