This trip is planned as a developing birder trip. While birders of all experience levels are welcome, we'll keep the group size small and focus on finding and identifying birds we see and hear as we walk the trails. We'll spend more time walking and less time scanning the lake with scopes. Meet near the bridge on the northwest side of the visitor's center parking lot and from there we'll walk trails along the lake. Plan on walking 2 to 3 miles on level trails and boardwalks. We'll also spend some time observing birds at the visitor's center feeders. The habitat here is riparian with Barr lake to the north and agricultural fields to the south. Barr Lake State Park is the #1 eBird hotspot in Colorado for the number of species reported (351). Its pretty safe to say that a good variety of birds are possible here. Geese should be plentiful. This is an excellent place to look for raptors. Binoculars and/or camera are recommended. I'll bring a scope that I'll share. Restrooms are available at the visitor's center. Register online or contact the leader.
