The Front Range of Colorado is a birdwatcher’s paradise, with a diverse range of habitats and species to discover. The foothills region in particular offers a unique mix of grasslands, riparian corridors, and ponderosa pine forests, making it an ideal location for birding. Some of the most sought-after species in this region include the Northern Pygmy-Owl, Golden Eagle, American Dipper, Lazuli Bunting, Yellow-breasted Chat, Black-chinned hummingbird, and Spotted Towhee.
During this immersive excursion, led by Alison Kondler, we will be attentive to both resident and migrating avian species, honing our skills in ear-birding. By doing so, we will be better equipped to connect a bird’s distinct auditory characteristics with our recollections.
The destination for the field trip will be in the base of the foothills in southwest Littleton, CO. You will receive additional information, including a map, via email one day prior to the field trip. All skill levels, ranging from beginners to seasoned birdwatchers, are welcome, provided that they are at least 12 years of age. Remember to bring along binoculars, warm layers, water, and some snacks.
Refunds will not be given for no-shows. Nonetheless, if the host is compelled to cancel the event, you will be refunded the entire amount. Please note that this field trip has a maximum capacity of 12 guests.
