WANT TO HELP SHAPE LAWS AFFECTING BIRDS IN COLORADO?

Advocating for bird-friendly legislation is one of the most impactful ways to help birds and the environment in Colorado. But without an understanding of the process, it can seem daunting.


Therefore, Audubon Rockies and Denver Audubon are sponsoring Getting Green Laws 2020, a free online webinar training in February on how to make your voice heard by legislators on policies affecting birds in Colorado being decided on right now.

~ BACKYARD BIRD HABITAT TOURS ~

Backyard Bird Habitat Tours, organized by Cindy Card, our club's president, 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!

FREE BIRD WALKS EVERY SATURDAY
WITH THE BOULDER FLYING CIRCUS BIRDERS

Time: 7:30 to 11:30 am
Where: Niwot Park-N-Ride - map
When: Every Saturday

The Boulder Flying Circus Birders, often led by Steve Frye, who has led this group since 1989, meet every Saturday for carpooling at the Park-and-Ride Lot between the lanes of the Diagonal Highway on Niwot Rd in Niwot, CO - map. (If the parking lot is blocked by a special event or other reason, they proceed individually to the Cottonwood Marsh Parking Lot at Walden Ponds.)


They leave the Niwot Park-and-Ride lot promptly at 7:30 am and return there about 11:00-11:30 am. Birding destinations are not predetermined and no reservations are required. All ages and experience levels welcome. Depending on circumstances and weather, they walk from 0.25 to 3 miles, sometimes with modest elevation gains. They recommend that you come ready to have fun, dressed for conditions and with optics, if you have them. Within reason, they go out every Saturday.
