Avalanche Creek Bird Watching
Saturday, June 26, 7 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Avalanche Creek near Redstone
Come to Avalanche Creek, just outside of Carbondale for a half day of bird watching! This bilingual Defiende Nuestra Tierra event is in partnership with the Audubon Society, and is a wonderful opportunity to get out with your family and friends to enjoy watching and listening to some local birds. We might see some colorful locals like the Western Tanager or the ruby throated hummingbird!
While slowly driving up toward the campground we can stop for any interesting birds we hear along the way. This section of mixed habitat is good for chipping sparrows, green-tailed towhees, western tanagers, black-headed grosbeaks, dusty flycatchers, both broad-tailed and black-chinned hummingbirds, Virginia’s warblers, and more. We will spend a bit of time in the campground area looking for many of the same species. As we slowly walk up the Avalanche trail we will be watching for red-naped sapsuckers, hairy and downy woodpeckers, brown creepers, golden-crowned kinglets, Steller’s jays and more.
To help us plan, please register in advance. Additional information will be sent in your confirmation email.
