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.

Habitats to bird: Alpine Tundra, Conifer Forest, Grassland, Wetland
We will visit Kite Lake near the town of Alma in search of White-tailed Ptarmigan and other high elevation species. This is a good time to see ptarmigan families with momma accompanied by her chicks. This is a search and not a guaranteed encounter, but we have a good chance to find some. This will take us to 12,500 feet elevation and some moderately strenuous (but slow paced) hiking for up to 2 miles above tree line as we search for ptarmigan. After we will descend to visit other fun areas to find various Park County breeders including a high elevation marsh and some aspen and forest areas. We will carpool. Volunteer drivers are needed. The last part of the road to Kite Lake (vehicle day use fee) is a bit rough and small SUVs are suitable. Bring lunch, snacks and drinks. Plan for a cold start and warmer conditions later, with lots of mountain sunshine.
