Spring Field Trips 2019

Spring field trips meet at 8:00 a.m. at the downtown location of Coal Creek Coffee (110 Grand Avenue) unless otherwise noted.  We will carpool from there. Most trips return to Laramie by noon or 1 p.m.  If you want to leave early, bring your own vehicle. Dress for Laramie weather and bring drinks and snacks. Bring binoculars, scopes, field books, and friends.

Dawn Chorus. The mountains surrounding Laramie host an exciting diversity of breeding species throughout the summer. On this trip, we will focus primarily on birding by ear, identifying our breeding species by the songs they use to defend territories and attract mates. Possible species include Yellow-rumped Warblers, Wilson's Warblers, American Redstarts, Cordilleran Flycatchers, Golden-crowned Kinglets, Hermit Thrush, Lincoln's Sparrows, and many more. We will meet at the Happy Jack parking lot at 6:00 am. Expect to walk 1-2 miles.
