Fountain Creek Nature Center

I didn't see a barn - but I did see this Barn Swallow while walking at Fountain Creek Nature Center. They are so pretty!

Usually they are flying around so quickly, I can't get a shot!

This was a very pleasant surprise - A Western Grebe.

I'm pretty sure this is a Bank Swallow. Please let me know if you think otherwise.

...another view

Look at those long wing tips!

Teal, Blue-winged.

I certainly didn't expect to see this in Colorado - an Eastern Kingbird. Apparently, they overlap into the territory of the Western Kingbird - but it's a first for me.

Red-winged Blackbirds are plentiful anytime we are near water.

Another view of the Barn Swallow.

We often see Wild Turkeys - but I don't think I've ever seen so many Tom's looking for attention from the ladies. Too bad they were so far away!
