Rocky Mountain National Park is a birder's paradise during the nesting season. During this two-day class, we will explore the various ecosystems (life zones) of the Park to find 50-70 bird species. We will identify hawks, falcons, eagles, ducks, white-tailed ptarmigan, brown-capped rosy-finch, swifts, broad-tailed hummingbird, swallows, tanagers, sparrows, warblers, American dippers, wrens, woodpeckers, owls, nuthatches, chickadees, kinglets, jays, common ravens and other corvids, and a number of other members of the area’s avifauna. We will discuss the natural history of both the birds and the montane, subalpine, alpine and riparian environments they inhabit.
