Crows & Coffee – Austin Bluffs and Pike’s Perk!

September 17, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am

“Whether you’re a seasoned birder or an amateur, join Collin Hildreth for a bird walk at Austin Bluffs and Pulpit Rock Open Space. We will meet at UCCS Parking Lot 580 (600 N Campus Heights). We will then proceed past the Heller Center and into the open space from there. Meet up time is 730a on Saturday, September 17th.  Walking will be at a slow pace on hilly, rock and dirt trails. Consider bringing sturdy shoes, binoculars and a field guide to enhance your birding experience.

Afterward, you’re invited to join us for coffee and some friendly chat at Pike’s Perk on North Academy Blvd (5965 N Academy Blvd).

No need to register, just show-up!  Help us make this a fun monthly gathering!”

Meet Collin!

Hello! My name is Collin Hildreth and I am a new field trip leader for Aiken Audubon.

I am a long-time birder and avid hiker here in Colorado Springs. I have lived in Colorado Springs for the past seven years and I have spent that time exploring many of Colorado’s unique trails while watching some incredible birds along the way! I began bird watching about 8 years ago while attending high school in New Hampshire. 

I certainly cannot pick one single bird as my favorite. However, Common Yellowthroats do hold a very special place in my heart! I also enjoy nature photography, so while I am out I usually have my camera in tow.

I personally find bird watching incredible because there are just so many birds to see and identify wherever I am in the world. Whether I am on a mountaintop or downtown there are always birds around. It truly is a hobby for everyone!

I also love to learn! Therefore, I aim to promote an atmosphere of knowledge sharing on the trips that I lead. That way, we all can learn the most from each other and enjoy our hobby to the fullest. Myself included!
