May 24th: Sourdough Nature Trail
Leader: Andrew Guttenberg, 451-5427
(4-5 hour trip; easy walking)
After leaving the MOR parking lot, this trip will begin at the Garner Park entrance. The trail is an easy, level stroll following Sourdough Creek. This trip is at the peak of spring migration so we should see and hear a variety of flycatchers, thrushes and warblers. Some of the neotropic birds nesting here are Northern Waterthrush, American Redstart, and Black-headed Grosbeak. 12 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.
