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 is a full day exploration of eastern Elbert County, a less-birded county, even though it neighbors the birder-rich Metro area. We will search for birds at playas that may have been watered by summer storms and other places shorebirds and longspurs might like. And we will seek prairie migrants like thick-billed and Chestnut-collared longspurs, Vesper and other sparrows, Lark Bunting, Cassin's Kingbird, shrikes, raptors, and who knows what? Plan for summer temps and lots of sunshine. We will be driving back roads, and have scoping to do at water spots. The leader will have a scope. There will be minimal walking. We will carpool from the meeting spot. Bring lunch and snacks, and drinks. Restroom opportunities will be very limited, but there is always the "prairie door".
