This was our sixth Pikes Peak Birding & Nature Festival, after taking a year off due to the pandemic.
Each year is unique. The weather may be sunny or stormy. Temperatures may be summery or chilly—after all, we are at high altitude.
Some birds are year-round residents. Others migrate to or from our area. Then, there are those species who wander; some years they are here in abundance, some years they hang out somewhere else.
To give you an idea of what previous festivals were like, we’ve posted photos and/or species lists from each previous year. Now it’s time to make new memories.
