Morning Birding Species List | September 10, 2013
September 11, 2013
Throughout the summer months ACES offers weekly Morning Birding classes at their Hallam Lake site in Aspen and Rock Bottom Ranch site in Basalt. Class outings venture to local birding hotspots and the birds never fail to impress. Take a look at the below species list and notes from one of the recent classes in Aspen and register today for upcoming birding classes, which run through September!
Tuesday, September 10, 2013, 7 AM – 10 AM
Weather: partly cloudy
Locations: Hallam Lake and North Star Nature Preserve
Great Blue Heron
Hreat Horned Owl
Downy Woodpecker (pictured above)
Comments: Great birding on a drizzly day with beautiful low clouds! Good challenges now include juveniles and non-breeding plumages on adults. Clark’s Nutcrackers are seen lately in small flocks in montane forest and shrubland. Fall migration activity is making birding this month spectacular!
