I was recently at Russell Lakes is in south and central Colorado. It was an awesome place to see birds, bugs, and beautiful views of the mountains. Here are a few photos I took while in the area.

The white-faced ibis. This is another wader bird that has a unique long curved beak. They are usually found in colonies; around lakes, marshes, or even flooded fields. They like to nest in reeds.
