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.

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.

Join the DFO spring hawk watch on this trip to Dinosaur Ridge. This is the best spot in the country to see migrating Ferruginous Hawk in spring, which are early migrants beginning in March. We are likely to also see Red-tails, Bald and Golden Eagles, and a few accipiters.Identifying flying raptors is very different from identifying them perched. The criteria used are different, with less emphasis on color of different parts, and a greater emphasis on structure and flight style. Many of the raptors at this site can be distant, but we will focus on those that are near and moderate distance, easily findable. Bring your binoculars, bird books, snacks/lunch, drinks and sunscreen. There is a 0.5 mile walk uphill to the hawk watch site, and condiions may be muddy or icy depending on recent weather. 

You can get a free Raptor ID, an app from Hawk Watch International for Android and iPhone. To view previous years’ results at Dinosaur Ridge, go to <> and choose the year and the month from the left sidebar.
