As part of your registration, in order to participate in a Denver Field Ornithologists, Inc. (“DFO”) trip or other activities designated by the Board of Directors, each adult participant and the parent of a minor participant (those under 18 yrs. of age) are required to review and sign (either electronically or manually) a DFO Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks & Release and Indemnity Agreement (sometimes “Agreement”) Completing this document involves your acceptance of binding contract terms. This online registration system allows you to review and electronically sign the Agreement if you do not have one on file. If you would prefer to manually sign a printable version of the Agreement, you may access it here, and present it to the leader before trip start. If you choose this option, please contact your leader to assure you are signed up for the trip.
Please note: Each person, including each family member choosing to sign the Agreement electronically must login and have a separate account so that the agreement is tied to the individual. If you are having difficulty with multiple logins, please contact us for assistance. *Minors: If participant is a minor, the minor’s parent or legal guardian must print out, review and sign a paper copy of the Agreement and present it to the leader before the trip start. Any minor attending must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.
Logged in users who have a signed Agreement on file will have the opportunity to print or save it at any time. Click on the link to the printable copy and use your browser functions to save or print.

This trip is limited to the first 6 registrations.
The south metro area includes rich birding areas, particularly along
the High Line Canal, Big and Little Dry Creeks, S. Platte River, and
amid the area's open spaces and parks. Many are under-birded. This
trip focuses on hotspots with fewer than 100 checklists or species on
eBird. We'll try to expand lists, submitting high-quality checklists
and contributing to citizen science efforts. We'll also try to come
away with a few good stories, observing the birds--common ones
included--as they live their lives in suburban and urban landscapes.
This month, we'll bird Westlands Park in Greenwood Village. In the
winter, this small, suburban park attracts flock of geese to its small
pond and grassy fields. Snow and Greater White-fronted Geese have been
observed here among those flocks. Wood Ducks can be numerous in
winter. So, too, can be Cedar Waxwings. Register online or contact the leader.
