This Merlin was sitting quietly on a post along the road near Walden Colorado. We stopped for a few quick photos and were quickly on our way leaving him to enjoy their afternoon.
The male Snowcap Hummingbird can sure pack a whole bushel of beauty into its tiny body. That beautiful red body topped off by a magnificent white crown.

Have a great and wonderful weekend.
A Green Heron tests the waters flowing down from a small waterfall in search of a mid-day meal.
A male Evening Grosbeak adds a splash of color to the local trees in much the same way those early spring flowers are adding a bit of color to the ground below.
The Brown Jay is and conspicuous bird to say the least. We found a flock moving through the trees and calling loudly while foraging for a morning meal this day.
This bird deftly plucked the last berry from a leafless branch and quickly devoured it before moving along with the rest of the boisterous flock to find another meal.
A little mountain bluebird right at home in a big blue world. Even when small part of it all.
