Ouray and Box Canyon, Saturday, August 21

We will look for nesting Black Swifts at Box Canyon Falls in Ouray and then spend time looking for other montane birds in the general area of Ouray, such as Criystal Lake, Red Mountain Pass, or the Amphitheater Campground area.  Please note that there is an entry fee for the falls, but it is well worth it, as it is the best and easiest place to see nesting Black Swifts.  The Box Canyon Falls park usually has other very interesting birds to view, as well, particularly at their feeders.  Depending on interest and what has been seen recently, we may alter our plans and stop at Ridgway State Park to loof for shorebirds and early migrants.  For those coming from the north, meet at Gold’s Gym at the corner of Hillcrest and East Main Street in Montrose at 8:00 AM.  For those closer to Ouray, meet at the Box Canyon Park in Ouray at 8:45 AM.  We expect to be done around noon, but you may want to bring a snack.  The trip will be led by Don Marsh, who can be contacted at (209) 256-5744 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
