BCAS field trip group on the North Rim of the Black Canyon.
First Tuesday Birding Trips
Raptor Field Trips
Every year we do raptor field trips - two days each in the North Fork Valley and Uncompahgre Valley. Trips will go until 2:00 or 3:00 each day and are limited to 12 participants each day. Please sign up in advance to reserve your place. Usually there is a waiting list, so if you sign up and then are unable to attend, let the trip leader know in advance so your place can be filled by an appreciative next person on the list. Bring a lunch, warm clothes, and binoculars. Carpools will be arranged at the meeting places to reduce the numbers of cars in the caravan.
Eckert Crane Days
Friday-Sunday, March 15, 16, and 17, 9:00 a.m.: Join us as we clebrate the annual migration of Sandhill Cranes through western Colorado. We will be at Crane Point or along the causeway on the north side of Fruitgrower's Reservoir beginning at 9:00 a.m. to welcome visitors, provide information about cranes, and will have spotting scopes set up for crane viewing. The cranes typically arrive the night before and lift off for thier journey northward between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. each morning, so make sure to arrive in time to view them in the nearby fields and to enjoy their raucous lift off. More information to come.
