Aiken Monthly Meeting January 2024 | Raptor Identification

January 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Want to figure out which hawk that is in your backyard?  How about the hawk along the highway?
Colorado has 18 non-rare species of diurnal raptors. Join us in January, along with Debbie Barnes as she presents 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. Join us and learn the tips that will greatly improve your skills.

Debbie has been birding and photographing birds for over twenty years.  In addition, she volunteers for Colorado State Parks, Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas II and several Christmas Bird Counts. She has taught raptor identification classes at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, spoken at meetings of Colorado State Parks Raptor Monitors and taught a birding class at Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument.  She has written a bird guide for Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and Cheyenne Mountain State Park.  She is currently writing a guide for Mueller State Park.  She served for several years on the board of Aiken Audubon and is currently serving on the Field Trip board for Colorado Field Ornithologists.

This will be an in-person meeting (and broadcast on Zoom) held at the Colorado Parks & Wildlife Office located at 4255 Sinton Road 80907. The classroom entrance is on the back (east side) of the building. The main door will be locked.
