Colorado has 18 non-rare species of diurnal raptors. Debbie Barnes will be presenting an information-packed program explaining how to identify Colorado’s eagles, hawks, falcons and kites. Debbie has been studying the identification of these birds for ten years and has developed a program to help separate the various species. Here is your chance to learn the tips that will greatly improve your skills. Don’t miss this outstanding program. You can put your new skills into practice by signing up for the Raptor ID field trips in January and June, and the Eagle Days trip in February.
