The secret to a good winter birding day in Colorado is to find a nice mix of waterfowl and other over-wintering birds. Our day will begin along the South Platte River because as lakes, ponds, and reservoirs freeze, the moving open waters of the Platte host thousands of waterfowl along its passage through Denver. There are prime locations for 15 or more species of ducks, geese, and grebes. The riparian vegetation along the river hosts good numbers of songbirds, and raptors cruise the skies above. Then we’ll move west to several fine winter birding sites along the Front Range. Destinations will depend upon recent bird activity. 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.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the event.
