Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

We surprised these birds from their comfy roosts within a rocky outcropping in Ken Caryl Canyon, and managed to snap some action photos with the new camera. Glad they made us look UP. (Is there a bird expert out there who can tell me what kind of birds these are?)

  1. Well, nuts. I’m always up for a bird ID challenge, but this is too tough. Even my field guides are only for the eastern half of the continent.

    • No one else has taken up the challenge, so I’m counting on you. It could be they are just pretty ordinary birds that one could find anywhere. My daughter-in-law, a Denver native, didn’t know what they were, but I don’t think she particularly follows birds anyway. They seemed to be roosting the the crags of the rock, so they might be some kind of bird that nests in rocky heights.

Don't leave yet. Tell me what's on your mind.
