Mornings with Colorado Wildlife

One of the best times to view wildlife in Colorado is in the early morning, a time when many species are most active (along with dusk). Now, thanks to fun video series recently added to the State Publications Library collection, you don’t even have to get out of bed to be able to watch some of Colorado’s early birds (and fish, and mammals…).

a.m. Colorado video series opening titleThe video series a.m. Colorado is a production of the Colorado Division of Wildlife’s Colorado Outdoors magazine. (Copies of the magazine are also available for checkout from the library). Each video in the series profiles a different Colorado wildlife species early in the morning. Not only do they offer interesting facts and footage of wildlife in their habitats, but they also show some spectacular shots of Colorado scenery and sunrises.


Colorado offers many great opportunities for wildlife viewing. You can find tips and information in these additional publications available in the library’s collection:
