Colo Birding Trail Launches at Snow Goose Fest Feb 23-25

Looking for something fun to do next week-end (not this upcoming week-end but the one after)? The Colorado Birding Trail will officially be launched at the High Plains Snow Goose Festival in Lamar February 23-25. And the keynote speaker is none other than Pete Dunne, Director of Cape May Bird Observatory and Vice-President for Natural History Information for the New Jersey Audubon Society. Pete, who has been awaded the American Birding Society Roger Tory Peterson Award for promoting the cause of birding, has written 9 books and numerous articles about birding and natural history.

And what a bargan--registration is $10 with charges of $5-15 for some of the tours (though the Raptor Tour with Pete Dunne carries a fee of $30, also a bargain compared to what other birding festivals and conventions charge for birding with such a big name leader). And the banquet is only $15 for adults!

There are lots of programs and tours, not just birding but some to/about local historical areas and also rock art. A great opportunity for couples or families with non-birders who would enjoy these other diversions. And the motel prices are quite reasonable. Check it out here and print a registration form too. Read articles about it here and here.
