From the Back Cover

From prairies to peak tops, Colorado attracts an intriguing mix of birds, from Mountain Plovers and Rosy-Finches to Lazuli Buntings and Black Swifts. Birders from all over the country visit the state to see the vast variety of western and prairie specialties.

 

Birding Colorado guides you to the best birding sites at treeless prairies in Pawnee National Grassland; canyons, mesas, and mountains in four national parks and three national monuments; marshes, ponds, and streams in five national wildlife refuges; and mountain, mesa, and prairie highways and byways. Organized by region, this guide lists the likely birds at each site and the status and distribution of all species recorded in the state.

 

For more than twenty-five years, FalconGuides® have set the standard for

outdoor guidebooks. Written by top experts, each guide invites you to experience the adventure and beauty of the outdoors.

 

Inside you'll find:

 

• Where and when to go, how to get there, and likely birds

 

• A description of each site, with information about key species

 

• Where to find migrating eastern species, water birds, and such specialties as
  Pygmy Nuthatch, Greater Roadrunner, and American Three-Toed Woodpecker

 

• Details on the seasonal distributions of 482 bird species—where they occur,
   their abundances there, and the best times to see them

I have found Falcon's birding field guide series quite helpful, however Birding Colorado was a disappointment. The author, Hugh Kingery, has a great deal of experience birding in Colorado. He describes birding spots along the Front Range well enough, but the farther he goes from Denver, the less interest he seems to have. Many sites in the western fourth of the state receive only the most cursory treatment. In one or two cases he fails to mention a single species of bird one is likely to encounter there.

If you share Mr. Kingery's fascination with swifts, this book is essential. It will prove only marginally helpful if you are also interested in seeing, say, waterfowl or songbirds. There are a number of excellent websites devoted to birding in Colorado that, quite frankly, offer far more extensive and useful information than does this book.

Falcon guides are always good. This one is no exception. I will definitely take it with me on my next trip to Colorado.

I used this book to plan a week birding trip to Western Colorado. Nearly every site in this book was accurate, and we found the target birds described. Definitely worth the $!

If you're from out of state or a beginning birder in the state, this series of books provides your planning guide for weekends and vacations. The state rare bird alerts and local Audubon clubs will flesh that out with some more detailed info.
