Springtime Wildlife

Hooray, it’s spring! I saw my first robin of spring this morning, but I live in the city…if you go to the less inhabited parts of Colorado, you will find many wonderful species of wildlife for viewing. Spring is a great time for wildlife viewing because not only are birds and animals emerging either from hibernation or warmer climates, but sometimes exotic species of birds will pass through Colorado briefly on their way to other locales. The Colorado Division of Wildlife has produced two illustrated guides on wildlife in the spring: Spring Wildlife Viewing and Hearken! It’s Spring. Not only does springtime wildlife viewing present new and exciting species, it is also a time for viewing adorable baby animals. So get your ducks in a row with these handy publications and then enjoy the interesting wildlife our state has to offer!
