Heron, Eagle, Osprey Watching

Join Jonathan Lowsky, wildlife biologist with Colorado Wildlife Science LLC, and staff from Roaring Fork Conservancy for Heron, Eagle, Osprey Watching from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 7, near the confluence of Cattle Creek and the Roaring Fork River. This area is nest heaven: over 20 nesting pairs of herons, one pair of bald eagles, and in 2005, the first recorded pair of ospreys fledged an offspring near this site. The tour visits two properties, off-limits to the public, in search of these large avian predators. Bring binoculars or a spotting scope. Dress appropriately as the viewing will happen rain or shine. Registration is required: Cost is $10 nonmembers, RFC members are free. Call (970) 927-1290 with questions.
