Raptor ID Course: Signs of Spring

March 4, 2017 @ 9:45 am - 12:45 pm


AdvancedID2015July 032RC

REF is proud to once again present our Signs of Spring raptor ID class, featuring species which are both “coming and going”. As we eagerly await the warm days of Spring and glimpse the first crocuses pushing up through the ground, our state’s raptors are already on the move! Some species are heading north, some are returning from the south. Others will simply move east, or up to the cooler, higher elevations. You never know whom or what you may see cruising through Colorado’s skies in early spring, so if you want to bone up on your skills ahead of the spring migration, this is the class for you!
Several of REF’s live raptors will be featured, coupled with the combined skill and experience of Colorado Parks & Wildlife Raptor Monitor Karen Metz and Anne Price, REF’s Curator of Raptors. You won’t want to miss the chance to see two of our newest raptors up close: our Mississippi kite and our immature female bald eagle!
The class will be held at our facility in Brighton on Saturday, March 4th with a tour of our exterior mews to conclude the session. Check in time is 9:45AM, and the lecture portion (indoors) runs from 10:00AM to 12:00 Noon, with the mews tour afterwards. Space is limited to 20 people, by advance reservation only. The fee per person is $50. Morning refreshments will be provided.
