Common bird that likes coniferous forests. Can be found as far east as the Rocky Mountain foothills. Bold and curious.
Loves juniper trees to the point of being territorial of them in the winter. They depend on the Juniper berries to survive the winter, each bird eating as many as 84,000 berries1in a single winter. This bird's tendency to remain still makes them slightly more difficult to spot — many birders will listen for their pleasing and complex singing to find them. Look for the white eyering and upright posture.
One of the most beautiful birds in Colorado. Relatively common — look for them in open spaces, such as mountain meadows or where prairie turns into forest.
