We will be looking for the Colorado birds that live in the park all year, as well as summer and fall migrants. Many summer migrants may have already left (White-throated Swifts, swallows, etc.), but there are always laggards. We may see other birds that are more common in the winter (American Tree Sparrow, Townsend's Solitaire), while listening for singing residents. Of course raptors are often observed in the air over Roxborough and on the cliffs, so we will be watching for them too. Many eyes help! Roxborough State Park has an entry fee if you do not have a pass. Bring sun protection, water, snacks if desired, and binoculars. Meet at the visitor center.
Trip leaders will be Bea Weaver, Ruth Gabreski, and Tina Leslie. For more information, please call Bea Weaver at (305) 498-5935.
