Rosy-finch survey July 21

Reminder that the Brown-capped Rosy-finch survey is tomorrow, July 21. We will meet at the Friendly Store in Centennial (note: this is a new meeting place) at 8:30 am. Be prepared to spend the day hiking and looking for rosy-finches. The birds are not in predictable locations so considerable walking may be required. Some of the trails have fairly steep portions and the elevation can be challenging for some people. You may also spend time sitting still to search for or observe birds.

Remember to bring binoculars and/or spotting scope, a field guide, warm clothes (including wind protection), lunch and snacks, water, and sunblock. Maps can also be useful. Bring your friends along for a great day of hiking and bird-watching in the Snowies!
