Date: 2/12/17 7:38 pm From: Anne Price <raptoresse...> Subject: [cobirds] "Signs of Spring" Raptor ID Course: Adams Co. (Brighton) 3/4/17
The Raptor Education Foundation (REF) is proud to present our raptor ID class, "Signs of Spring", featuring species which are both coming and going. As we eagerly await the warm days of March and glimpse the first crocuses pushing up through the ground, our state's raptors are already on the move! Some species are heading north, some are returning from the south. Others will simply move east, or up to the cooler, higher elevations. You never know whom or what you may see cruising through Colorado's skies in early spring, so if you want to bone up on your skills ahead of the spring migration, this is the class for you!
Several REF's live raptors will be featured, coupled with the combined skill and experience of Colorado Parks & Wildlife Raptor Monitor Karen Metz and Anne Price, REF's Curator of Raptors. You won't want to miss the chance to see two of our newest raptors up close: our immature bald eagle and great-horned owl.
The class will be held at our facility in Brighton on Saturday, March 4th with a tour of our exterior mews to conclude the session. Check in time is 9:45AM, and the lecture portion (indoors) runs from 10:00AM to 12:00 Noon, with the mews tour afterwards. Space is limited to 20 people, by advance reservation only. The fee per person is $50. Morning refreshments will be provided.
