June 5, 2009: Birding Gregory Canyon (Boulder), and Pike Natl Forest/Pine Valley Ranch

Some more time for birding today. I stopped again in the morning at Gregory Canyon and this time got the Virginia's Warbler! Then in the evening, another stop at Pike National Forest and nearby Pine Valley Ranch. Still no luck on the Three-Toed Woodpecker! Thanks again to the Colorado Birders for all of their help, and Richard Stevens for the flower identifications..
