Lair O' Bear is a mountain riparian ecosystem consisting of willow carr and a nice variety of trees. Bear Creek stream runs along the parking & picnic area. American Dippers are usually in the stream or on the rocks. We will hike 3-4 miles with some elevation increase. We can have lunch after the hike and enjoy this gem in the Jefferson County Open Space. So be ready for fun, hiking, sun, bugs and lunch. Should you have a change in plans, please remove yourself from the trip on the DFO website. <span style="font-weight: bold">Register online or contact leader. </span>

This full day trip will explore out to the eastern border of Colorado, possibly visiting counties such as Yuma, Kit Carson, Cheyenne or Lincoln. We will target areas that attract migrants, hoping for something unusual. This is a great time for migrant grassland birds, early migrants, and hopefully eastern specialties and rare birds. Plan to carpool from the meeting spot. Bring lunch and liquids, Long drives and hot weather. <span style="font-weight: bold">Register online or contact leader.</span>

The best urban birding spot west of New York's Central Park? Your leader thinks so. Come find out. There will be lingering colonial waterbirds at the Duck Lake and Ferril Lake island rookeries -- cormorants for sure, and maybe a few herons and egrets. But City Park is also home to Red-tailed and Cooper's hawks, woodpeckers, waterfowl, songbirds, corvids and, on any given day, a surprise guest or two. Could be a sapsucker, maybe a thrush, or how about an early migrant heading south? Last summer a lark bunting dropped by. You never know. Dress for the weather. Bring a hat and water. <span style="font-weight: bold">Register online or contact leader.</span>

This will be a full Tuesday outing to one or a few SE counties. We will focus on migrant shorebirds and other waterbirds, and this is a good time to hope for an unusual summer dispersant.

 We'll probably bird First Creek on both sides of Buckley Road, the Adams/Denver county dividing line. But we'll start on this still-new trail into the far east side of Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWR. Expect resident prairie grassland and cottonwood forest species along the creek, which leads to a cattail-lined pond and trees where hawks, owls and the occasional eagle hang out. After looping around that side, we'll catch the grassland-and-trees area north of the creek on the Denver side before walking east and upstream (time permitting) in First Creek @ DEN Open Space. Expect the unexpected -- early migrants going south, waterfowl in the creek, raptors in the skies. Dress for the weather, bring water and a hat, and expect to walk 3-4 miles on level gravel and paved trail. "Go before you go" at the King Soopers restrooms at 49th and Tower Road. Regiister online or contact the leader.
