Day 8 - A Monumental Day

This morning we set off into Colorado National Monument a stunning park that could almost rival the Grand Canyon. We soon found a very nice Black-throated Sparrow, followed by Rock Wren, Juniper Titmouse, Bushtits, some close White-throated Swifts and further along past some fantastic scenery we found Bewick's Wren, Hairy Woodpecker, Violet-green Swallows, Western Bluebirds and lower down we had several Gambel's Quail. The rest of the day was pretty much travelling with stops to look at Chukar sat on a rock, Golden Eagles flying around and Mule Deer, Elk, Beaver, White-tailed Prairie Dogs and a variety of chipmunks and ground squirrels.
