Trip Registration

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.

Join this special "Patch Birding" trip, with DFO member Donna Feldman as our guest guide to share birding her Washington Park patch with us. Read more about it just below. We hope to have a variety of ducks to enjoy and we can work on our Duck identification skills following up on a Dec 8 Bird Bombs on winter duck ID. We will also seek other birds of early winter, including gulls, sparrows and whatever other land birds we can find. Expect about two miles total walking. Scopes will be useful, and we can share. 

From guest guide Donna Feldman: "I’ve been visiting Wash Park for over 20 years, but I didn’t really notice the birds until about 6 years ago when I realized that not all the ducks out on the lake were mallards. Who were they? What were they? Why were some of them swimming around and around in a circle? And that’s what started me birding. For a busy urban park, Wash Park attracts a nice variety of birds. And in the winter, ducks. Lots of ducks. In the summer, the island is full of nesting Black-crowned Night Herons and Snowy Egrets. I like to visit often to see who arrived, who is still here, and who has moved on. The park has two lakes, one pond, two different loop trails, two formal flower gardens, large grassy areas, and lots of big old trees to explore. It’s a wonderfully diverse urban patch."
