Begin your journey discovering birds and nature with this coloring book guide to 48 species of birds that live in the shrub-lands and forests of the neighborhoods, parks, and wildlands along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.

As you color in the illustrations in this book,  using the full-color images as a coloring guide, you will gradually become more familiar with the variations in size, body and bill shape, as well as specific markings and coloration patterns that differentiate various local bird species.

Once you tune your brain enough to notice some of these identifying traits, you will be well on your way to learning to recognize and identify all the birds that visit your bird feeders or flit within view as you picnic or hike outdoors.

And that may be just a beginning.  “Birding,” the sport of seeking out and identifying wild birds, is an activity that can heighten your awareness and attunement with the world around you.  People who join in this sport soon find themselves awakening to nature in surprising ways.  You are likely to begin noticing subtle changes in habitat and vegetation, changes in the seasons, and becoming more aware not only of birds, but also of plants, insects and other animals that you previously overlooked.

Learning to recognize local birds is a great first step in a life-long journey that can bring you endless hours of enjoyment and discovery.
