In late April, I led my first solo-tour for Tropical Birding. Having worked with them several times in the past (namely in Texas and Ecuador), it was fun to be able to do a full tour. My targets: all the grouse in Colorado. We drove a circuitous route around the state, finding all but Dusky Grouse and even getting a few surprises along the way. Rather that re-write the entire trip, you can read the trip report here.
