Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge offers another great opportunity to enjoy a birding adventure in the Denver metro-area. Rocky Mountain Arsenal is a 15,988-acre National Wildlife Refuge located near Commerce City, Colorado. The complex offers visitors a chance to reconnect with nature and experience the all different wildlife species that take refuge here. For more information please visit their website.
Late this winter I made time to visit the refuge and take advantage of the many walking trails that are available. Lake Ladora was beautiful with the thinning frozen water and clear skies above.
During the walk I captured some of the birds I saw along the way. The highlight of the trip was spotting a Great Blue Heron, which was very unusual for the time of year. Please take a moment to follow the link below to enjoy the slideshow of pictures.
