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 15 registrations.
Habitats to bird: Grassland, Reservoir, Riparian
We will meet at 7 AM at the Visitor Center, gather and bird/walk to the banding station approximately ¼ mile from the parking lot. All walking in the initial part of the trip is on even flat surfaces. We will spend an hour 7:30 to 8:30 at the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies banding station observing the banding process with Banding Coordinator Meredith McBurney. There will be the opportunity to observe birds in the hand and perhaps release birds after the banding process. We will walk around the netting area to observe the netting process. From the station we will walk along the dike observing riparian birds and if there are birds along the shore we will walk out to the edge of the reservoir. That walk will be on flat but somewhat irregular surface of the dried lake bed. Scopes are suggested. It is likely to be cool in the morning so bring layers. Sneakers are usually adequate for this walk. You will need a Colorado State Park pass in your vehicle to enter the park. That can be obtained from the entrance kiosk when you enter. There is a $ 6 fee for the banding station visitor that goes to support the banding program. Please pay that to the leader Charlie at the beginning of the trip. The first part of the trip including the banding station is on relatively level ground and wheelchair accessible. When we walk down to the nets and out to the lake, participants will need to navigate a set of steps.
