Larimer County Department of Natural Resources hosting birding tour of Eagle’s Nest

Spring is an excellent time to view the abundance and diversity of migratory and resident birds along the Front Range of Colorado. Join Bird Conservancy of the Rockies biologist Jeff Birek for a birding tour of Eagle’s Nest Open Space, located south of Livermore, near U.S. 287. The event takes place 6:30 a.m. to noon on Friday, June 3.

Possible species to be seen on this tour include lazuli bunting, spotted towhee, yellow warbler, golden eagle and American kestrel, plus many others.

This is one of a series of free educational programs the Larimer County Department of Natural Resources is hosting to mark the 20th anniversary of the Help Preserve Open Spaces sales tax.

Participants will meet at Eagle’s Nest Open Space. They should be able to traverse medium terrain for several miles and bring binoculars, water, snacks and appropriate clothing for variable weather conditions. Hike rating: Moderate. Approximately 5.5 hour program.

Program is free, although a $5 donation to Bird Conservancy of the Rockies is suggested.
