Bluff Lake offers a great range of habitat: wetland, yucca, and large cottonwoods. This attracts a variety of raptors, songbirds, and ducks in winter. Portable toilets are on site but no potable water. The pond paths are easy walking trails. We’ll be walking 1-1.5 miles around the pond for the first part of the trip. Then, if the weather is agreeable and people are interested, we will walk overland, up the creek area. Ducks have been seen on the creek in the past. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen. Scopes are optional. <span style="font-weight: bold">Register online or contact leader.</span>

Look for gulls, waterfowl, and a variety of birds. Habitats include deep water, marshlands, mixed grasses, and cottonwoods. We will carpool to the various stops and walk 1-2 miles.  November and December are great times to bird reservoirs and Cheery Creek is one of the best locations. Bring binoculars, water, snacks, sunscreen, and bug repellent. Scopes are useful. <span style="font-weight: bold">Register online or contact leader.</span>

This trip will seek late migrants, waterfowl, geese, raptors, stragglers and rare birds as we explore east from Otero County to Kiowa County, probably also visiting Bent and Crowley counties.

Specific birding spots will be selected the day of the trip based on what is around and weather, maybe following up on a stakeout rare bird that would be new for the Big Year, and visiting sites to seek a variety of species. Plan to carpool. Some sites may have moderate walking.<span style="font-weight: bold"> Register online or contact leader.</span>

We'll explore some parts of Elbert County and, maybe, Lincoln and Arapahoe counties, too, driving roads and seeing what we can find. We can hope to find Winter Wren, longspurs, raptors, Northern Shrike, and maybe unexpected migrants. Bring lunch, snacks and drinks. Plan to carpool. Restroom opportunities will be very limited, but we will be out in the fields. <span style="font-weight: bold">Register online or contact leader.</span>

We will visit several birding hotspots throughout the morning. Locations may vary depending on most recent sightings. Depending on time and bird activity, we may venture into nearby Boulder and Jefferson Counties. Weather may be cold or warm so plan accordingly. We will walk 1 to 3 miles on mostly level ground. Bring water, snacks and whatever else you may need. Hopefully we will have interesting migrants still passing through and the normal early winter species that show up in the area. Be ready to add Broomfield County or build you bird list. <span style="font-weight: bold">Register online or contact leader.</span>
