Got cabin fever? Take a short drive to Dinosaur National Monument and do some bird watching.

Winter is still a good time to see birds. Grab a pair of binoculars and bundle up. A journey along the Tour of the Tilted Rocks scenic drive could yield views of a variety of species. Along the Green River, look for numerous Canada geese and majestic bald eagles. In open areas, look for mountain blue birds and goldfinch. Perhaps the northern flicker, a large woodpecker, will surprise you by being on the ground searching for food, rather than in the trees.

These are just a few of the numerous bird species that have been seen this winter in the monument. This weekend take a trip to Dinosaur National Monument and enjoy this fun way to connect with nature in the winter.
