Winter Birding in RMNP

by Christa Marsh

Approximately 280 bird species have been reported in Rocky Mountain National Park and the surrounding area over the last 100 years. It has such a diverse and abundant bird population, that it's designated as a Global Important Bird Area!

While some species are just passing through, many of these feathered friends can and do choose to stick around for the winter. Birding is a wonderful RMNP winter activity and all you need is patience and a quiet location. Step it up with a good pair of binoculars, some cocoa and a cozy blanket! A few favorite birding spots in the park are: Endovalley, Moraine Park, Wild Basin, Trail Ridge Road, Upper Beaver Meadows, Lumpy Ridge, Cow Creek and Bear lake Road.

For a complete list of species observed in RMNP visit RockyMountainNationalPark.com's Birding Page.

Let's get started identifying some of our hearty avian species that enjoy the snow and chilly mountain weather as much as we do!

A favorite for me because they transform to white after they molt their brown feathers in the fall. The White-Tailed Ptarmigan lives at higher elevations (at and above tree line) in the summer, but in the winter they stay lower (at or below tree line) where snow is available for roosting.

The Gray Jay is another winter favorite. They puff up to stay warm and are quite social! Gray Jays live in Colorado's subalpine forests. An interesting factoid about Gray Jays- they nest in the late winter rather than Spring and mated pairs stay together all year!
