Juniper Titmouse

This morning at Aiken Canyon Preserve, located about 25 miles southwest of Colorado Springs, I saw my first Juniper Titmouse. This was a difficult bird to photograph as you can probably tell by the poor quality of the photo. However, it was far more cooperative than the Mourning Warbler that I also saw there.
