Fall Raptor Trip--Sat, Nov 9th

Saturday, Nov. 9th, 8:30am.  Fall Raptor Field Trip led by our local raptor expert Chad Olson.  We will search high and low for Golden and Bald Eagles, Ferruginous Hawks, Rough-legged Hawks,  Red-tailed Hawks, owls, American Kestrels, Merlins, and whatever else is out there.  We are always successful on this fall trip.  If you want to know about the various stages of coloration, age, and other characteristics of raptors, this trip is for you!  Very little walking is involved in this trip, but when we step out into the cold wind to spot the birds overhead or on the ground, you'll want to be dressed very warmly.

Laramie Audubon field trips are free and open to birders of all levels.  We will meet at Night Heron Books and Coffee, 107 E. Ivinson, downtown Laramie, to caffeinate and carpool.  Please dress for the worst weather and bring your birding paraphenalia, water and snacks.  This particular trip involves a lot of driving in search of raptors in our plains near Laramie, so gas up ahead of time.

Alternate date, in case of inclement weather (rain or blizzard counts as inclement), is Nov. 16th.  Call 307-760-8546 if you have questions.
