Leader: Janne Hayward, 587-6124 **(TRIP FULL)**
(1/2 day, driving gravel roads)
Get up close and personal with Mountain Bluebirds. Join bluebirders Janne Hayward and Lou Ann Harris as they check bluebird nest boxes and band adults and nestlings along Rocky Mountain Road. This is a rare opportunity to get an inside look at the lives of these amazing birds, including nest building, egg laying and raising young. Due to the sensitive nature of the work, we are limiting this field trip to 6 participants. Inclement weather will cancel the trip. If there is enough interest, a second trip will be added Monday, June 30th.
Participants in this trip will meet at the N. 19th Rest Area at 7:30 a.m. Car pools will be arranged there; 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.
