Bird Walk: Migrant Traps of the Eastern Plains

May 21, 2020
7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

By mid-May, the songbird migration is well underway. Eastern Colorado is home to a number of “migrant traps,” oases in the high-prairie desert, usually a pond or lake surrounded by woodland. Migrating songbirds flying across the endless prairie see these hospitable-looking sites and are attracted to them like tourists to a Holiday Inn in the wasteland! Warblers, flycatchers, orioles, vireos, thrushes, and more have one thing on their minds: eating and drinking as much as they can hold to continue their migration to the nesting grounds. We will search for all of these and more.
