One of the joys of living in Colorado is the diversity of wildlife, be it on a mountain or in town. Just never know what’s going to turn up. Even birdwatching, we’ll find a surprise in a flash of yellow, blue or orange. I just watched a Western Tanager visit our fountain, a bright spot on an overcast evening. Last week, it was a yellow parakeet that caught my eye. And I’m hoping that someone caught the ‘keet so it could be returned home.
We have a natural area about 10 miles northwest as the crow flies, Bobcat Ridge. The City of Fort Collins has set up a camera project on some of the trails to see what wildlife uses the area. Some surprises in the photos, even for me living in the West most of my life … Wildlife camera: City of Fort Collins. Enjoy!!
