Book on Colorado flora and fauna

Postby jomagam » Sun Sep 16, 2012 7:08 pm

Can anyone recommend me a good book on Colorado wildlife ? Something with lots of pictures to identify the various species.

Check out this site:

The Rocky Mountain Nature Guide is good as is the Field Guide to the Rocky Mountain States (which all share similar flora and fauna).

The Audubon and Peterson guides are all pretty good too, Sidley guides for birds, etc.

I've got the Colorado Mt Club's "Rocky Mountain Flora" book and I really like it. I've been slowly ticking off flowers as I hike/climb and have found it to be very thorough. It's a little harder to search through and find things if you don't know the names, but the photos are good and I can't recall anything I haven't been able to identify.
