As autumn winds down, the lakes and ponds of Boulder and nearby western Weld County become irresistible destinations for returning waterfowl, raptors, and wintering songbirds. A walk around the Walden/Sawhill Ponds Complex can produce wintering sparrows, great horned owl, belted kingfisher, woodpeckers, chickadees, and the two Colorado wintering shorebirds, killdeer and Wilson’s snipe. Nearby Union Reservoir is bordered by marshes with blackbirds and prairies with meadowlarks, and perhaps a horned lark or two. The reservoir typically abounds with various grebes and common loons, with Pacific or redthroated loons on occasion. This region has some of the best late-fall birding in Colorado! Transportation is not included. Participants caravan from a meeting location. The meeting locations for bird walks vary with each outing, so please consult your reminder email for final information. Ages 18+.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the program.
