Date: August 22, 2019
Time: 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM MDT
Dispersing juvenile birds and early migrants are on the move by mid-August. This special birding outing will focus on learning about bird migration patterns in the Roaring Fork Valley, the importance of protected habitats for their resting and refueling needs, and how bird migration connects us to countries, continents, and hemispheres as birds begin the sensational phenomenon of fall migration. We will discuss the many environmental factors, internal cues, and physical adaptations birds use as they migrate between breeding and wintering ranges.
