Join us for a beautiful summer walk through the unique habitats of the Fountain Valley Trail and Roxborough’s stunning red rocks. We will look and listen for the numerous Roxborough breeding migrants, as well as year-round residents. We could see swifts, swallows, flycatchers, bluebirds, jays, wrens, vireos, warblers, and hummingbirds, plus sparrows, goldfinches, and raptors. This year’s fledglings should be present as well as adults. This trip is for all levels of birders, and beginners are especially welcome. We will start early to avoid the heat and cover 2.4 miles with a small change in elevation.

Leaders: Bea Weaver, Tina Leslie, and Ruth Gabreski, Audubon Master Birders.
