~ BACKYARD BIRD HABITAT TOURS ~

The Broomfield Bird Club is excited to announce that we have started a new birding experience for club members and all our friends: Backyard Bird Habitat Tours. These tours are being organized by our own, Cindy Card.

Backyard Bird Habitat Tours promise to be a lot of fun and inspirational for anyone interested in creating and maintaining habitats in their own yards that result in a rewarding stream of visiting birds throughout the seasons.

Please let Cindy know (720-656-5699) if you would like to offer your yard for a future tour, or if you know of a neighbor or family member who may be interested in hosting one of these habit tours.

Also, if you have any interest at all in attracting birds to your yard, don’t forget to pick up a copy of the All Seasons Hobby Guide at Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop in Arvada (on 7370 W. 88th Avenue – map). This Hobby Guide is designed to help you identify exactly which food and feeder combinations are most likely to bring in daily, seasonal, and rare birds. It will also help you to be thoughtful about where to place your feeders, how to create an inviting and safe environment for the birds, and how to solve basic problems. Give David at Wild Birds Unlimited a call 303-467-2644 for more information—and tell him the Broomfield Bird Club sent you!

Thanks -- and happy birding!

4 Ways to Celebrate the Year of the Bird

2018 marks the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the most powerful and important bird protection law ever passed. To honor its success, nature lovers around the world are joining forces to make 2018 the “Year of the Bird.” The next twelve months will be a celebration of scientific research and conservation efforts that protect birds today and will inspire and recommit support for the next hundred years.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is proud to join a group of more than one hundred conservation-minded organizations, such as National Geographic, the National Audubon Society, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and BirdLife International, to help rally local and worldwide awareness and support for birds and their habitats. Ensuring the success of migratory birds is an integral part of CPW’s mission to protect the wildlife resources of Colorado for current and future generations.

Here are four great ways to join in the celebration:
