Subject: [cobirds] Migration field trip with Luke Pheneger
This outing is brought to you by Boulder County Audubon:

Shorebird Migration at Walden-Sawhill Ponds and So Much More!

Saturday, April 21, 2018, 7 a.m.-10ish

Free, no limit

Leader, Luke Pheneger, a stellar Teen Naturalist

This is the prime window for shorebird fallout at the ponds and marshes of
this lovely wildlife area. This is the period in which you are most likely
to find Marbled Godwits, Short and Long-billed Dowitchers, Long-billed
Curlews, Whimbrels, Phalaropes, Sandpipers, Ploves, Ibis, Avocets and
Black-necked Stilts. These birds stop to refuel before winging their way
to the plains and arctic tundra to breed. The ponds should also feature
Cinnamon and Blue-winged Teals as well as a host of other ducks.

As a bonus, it is also the peak of migration for Broad-winged Hawks. Early
warblers that should be present include Orange-crowned, Yellow-rumped and
almost anything else. Bitterns and Rails are moving in too!

Meet at the Cottonwood Marsh parking lot off of 75th Street. Bring the
usual gear, good walking shoes, hats, water, snacks, scopes and binoculars.
