The Black Canyon Audubon Society sponsored two raptor field trips last weekend. On Saturday, Feb. 10 and again on Sunday, Feb. 11, nearly two dozen enthusiasts explored Delta County back roads between Hotchkiss, Crawford, and Paonia searching for a variety of raptors.
The Black Canyon Chapter of the Audubon Society is offering four field trips to look for raptors (eagles, hawks, owls and falcons) in the Montrose and North Fork areas. The trips will be limited to 12 people per day on a first come, first serve basis.
On Oct. 1, Black Canyon Audubon Society members hosted the fall quarterly meeting of the Audubon Colorado Council. The ACC coordinates efforts of the state's 11 Colorado Audubon chapters to meet the National Audubon Society mission of conserving and restoring natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity.
Last Saturday about 20 bird watchers and birding enthusiasts endured freezing temperatures around Hotchkiss during the 116th annual National Audubon Society Christmas Bird Count.
Jason Beason, special monitoring projects coordinator with the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies (formerly the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory), said this year's Hotchkiss bird count, sponsored by the Black Canyon Audubon Society, revealed more than 70 individual species.
