The Boulder Bird club held their annual Mountain Feeders Field Trip last Saturday in Ward and Allenspark. We stopped at the Rock Creek Tavern & Pizza for refreshments. The owners are going to move this establishment into the old Fawnbrook and they are busy working in that direction. We enquired about bird feeders and they were non-committal at this time focusing only on their move. In the future after they are settled they may be more approachable regarding feeders. Later, maybe the birding community could pitch in to assist with this if the owners are receptive to the idea?

From the outside, it looks like some building repairs are underway--can't tell what might be going on inside. There were just a few feeders hung out but no bird action and couldn't tell whether these are just vestiges from the previous owners. If I were a bird, the situation didn't look very attractive. I have no info on what the future might hold but at least for now, I wouldn't advise traveling to Allenspark just to visit the Fawnbrook Inn.

I am leading a winter ornithology field trip for CU students next weekend. Fawn Brook has served us well over the past decade but no longer was in operation last year.
