In late September, my wife and I took a short holiday in Colorado, USA. Although not a birding trip, I took a number of opportunities to look for birds and other wildlife. The weather was unseasonably warm, and it seemed that many summer birds had already departed, but the incoming migrants had not yet arrived. Nevertheless, some interesting birds were seen, and the other wildlife was great.
On Saturday 20th September we took the California Zephyr train for the scenic 8-hour journey from Denver to Grand Junction, through the Rockies. Little identifiable birdlife was seen except for a small flock of American White Pelicans (not photographed) as we passed the lake at Windy Gap, near Granby.
