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 specties include Yellow-rumped Warbler, Wilson's Warbler, American Redstart, Cordilleran Flycatcher, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Hermit Thrush, Lincoln's Sparrow, and many more.  We will meet at the Happy Jack (sledding hill) parking lot at 6 a.m.  Expect to walk approximately 1-2 miles on uneven terrain.

Please wear a mask and be mindful of social distancing.  In addition, bring your binoculars (if you have them), an extra layer (perhaps two), sun protection, and water/snacks if you would like them.  Most trips will last for two to three hours, but attendees are free to leave at any time.  

Please pre-register by emailing us so that we can anticipate the group size and plan social distancing measures accordingly.
