Spring is an exciting time for birdwatching at 7,000 feet in the southern Rockies due to the many migrating species that pass through here each year. This little guy, the lazuli bunting, is one of my favorites. I think the males (like this one) will show brighter and more saturated colors a little later in the season, but this first one ain’t bad. I usually get my best shots from inside the house with a telephoto lens. The feeding stations and feeders are all located just outside the windows, which makes it easier. The Pentax K-x sits on the coffee table, ready to grab.
