Join us for a spring walk through the unique habitats of the beautiful Fountain Valley Trail and Roxborough’s stunning red rocks. We will look and listen for the many Roxborough spring migrants, as well as year-round residents. We could see swifts, swallows, flycatchers, bluebirds, jays, wrens, vireos, warblers, and hummingbirds, as well as sparrows, goldfinches, and raptors, including a Golden Eagle or Prairie Falcon. We will cover 2.4 miles with a small change in elevation. This trip is for all levels of birders, and beginners are especially welcome.
What to bring: binoculars, hat, appropriate outdoor clothing, sun screen, water, and a snack if desired. Scopes are optional.
Leader: Bea Weaver, Audubon Master Birder.
