May 10th Field Trip – Headwaters State Park

Vesper Sparrow  (L. Harris)

Vesper Sparrow (L. Harris)

Leader:  Martha Collins, 586-9478 or 579-0506

(1/2 day trip; easy walking)

The Headwaters area includes a variety of habitats, including sage/grassland and riparian, so anything from waterfowl to sparrows can occur.  One of the unique features of the Headwaters area are the limestone cliffs, which support several cliff nesting species such as Prairie Falcons and White-throated Swifts.  The park, which is situated along the Missouri River corridor, is an ideal location to observe early spring migrants. Those wishing to meet at the Headwaters area contact the trip leader. 15 person limit.

 

Participants in all trips will meet at the front parking lot of the Museum of the Rockies at 6:45 a.m., and depart at 7:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted.  Car pools will be arranged at the museum; an offer to help with gas to the driver is always appreciated but not mandatory.  Dress for the weather;  good footwear is a must as field trip conditions are not always dry.  Turn off your cell phones and keep unnecessary conversations to a minimum.  Some field trips are limited to a certain number of participants.  Contact the trip leader for more details about any trip, and to sign up for the trip.  We encourage beginning birders to participate.  Come have a good time and learn something new.
