Birding with ACES | December

Birding in fall, winter, and early spring is great exercise for your identification and field craft skills. Join Us to learn about non-breeding plumages, winter foraging strategies, and behaviors of migratory and resident birds. We often enjoy excellent views of birds in the absence of summer's foliage and close encounters where birds flock around food sources. Designed for birders of all experience levels, we focus on birding tips, sharing our observations, and the fun of connecting with nature. Every outing is a treasure hunt in diverse habitats of Hallam Lake and other local birding hotspots.

Join naturalist Rebecca Weiss on the first Tuesday of the month from October through April and discover the joy of birding! Bring your binoculars (or borrow ours) and field guide book (optional) and dress warmly: coat, gloves, hat, appropriate footwear especially when snow is on the ground.

She currently guides for ACES' Birding Program outings and is involved with the center's interpretive and custom programs. Rebecca is also a professional writer, developing trailside natural history interpretive signs in the Roaring Fork Valley and elsewhere in Colorado, as well as other writing projects. Rebecca is the author of Birds of Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley. She holds a BS in Biology and an MA in Environmental Education, and loves exploring the natural world with her husband, Austin, and their children Anders and Elsie.

WHAT TO BRING: Bring binoculars and bird field guide books. ACES has some binoculars to lend. Wear comfortable shoes for walking and appropriate layers for the temperatures. Bring snack and water if you need it for this short outing.

HOW TO GET THERE: Please walk, bike, bus, carpool, or ski to ACES sites whenever possible (yes, you really could cross country ski to ACES when there is enough snow). Parking at all sites is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet!
