As summer draws to a close, the eastern plains of Colorado come alive with southbound migrants. Among the first to pass through are shorebirds that recently departed their Arctic nesting grounds. The mudflats host thousands of sandpipers, plovers, and dowitchers. In the woodlands are songbirds, including Townsend’s warbler, Cassin’s and blue-headed vireos, and finches. In the prairie, Swainson’s hawks form their migratory “kettles,” while lark buntings and longspurs move south in large flocks. Transportation is not included. Participants caravan from a meeting location.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the program.
