Roxborough State Park – Nesting Residents BBE Hike
June 9, 2019- 7:30 am - 10:00 am
A bird’s song can easily brighten your day and instantly move you closer to nature, but with so many tweets, chips, and beeps, how can you build a connection between the sound and the species of bird? Easily with mnemonics!
Join Alison Kondler for a fun-filled morning to gain new techniques and tools that can help to bridge the gap between the bird’s sound and your memory by using custom made thought processes. Whether you are new to birdsong identification or an expert birder you’ll be sure to gain valuable knowledge from this field trip.
Possible birds species include: Golden Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Prairie Falcon, Lazuli Bunting, Black-headed Grosbeak, Black-chinned Hummingbird, Broad-tailed Hummingbird, White-throated Swift, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Canyon Wren, Yellow-breasted Chat, MacGillivray’s Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Spotted Towhee, Bullock’s Oriole, Cordilleran Flycatcher, Plumbeous Vireo, Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay, Bushtit, Black-capped Chickadee, Mountain Chickadee, White-breasted Nuthatch, Red-breasted Nuthatch, and Brown Creeper!
