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.

This trip is limited to the first 8 registrations.
This trip will focus on the lower Latham and Beebee draw delta areas. We might do some wandering to other nearby hotspots if time provides. We will mostly be birding by car with some standing and scoping from dirt county roads. Areas on either side of the road are private property and it's important to respect those property lines.
This trip should provide good looks at many species of dabbling ducks including Blue-winged Teal, Cinnamon Teal, Pintails, and Gadwalls. Fingers crossed for a few shorebirds and wading birds like stilts and avocets. Target passerines include Marsh Wren, Yellow-headed Blackbirds, and Great-tailed Grackle. If the actual reservoir is visible from the road we may see some diving ducks, grebes, etc.
If you have walkie-talkies please bring them! I have a pair but they are somewhat unreliable. Bring binos and spotting scopes. The more the scopes the better! Bring a sack lunch, car snacks, water etc. Feel free to reach out with any questions. I will send an email a few days before the trip with links to the ebird hotspot bar charts.
We will meet at 7:00 am at 3737 Blake St, Denver, CO 80205 RTD Park and Ride light rail station and carpool from there. Register online or contact the leader.
