Audubon Birding Day: Timberline Lodge

Join Ross as we explore the Timberline Lodge area and surrounding alpine trails in search of montane species such as Clark’s Nutcracker, Mountain Bluebird, Mountain Chickadee, and Cassin’s Finch. We will then take the chair lift to the higher elevation scree fields hoping for views of Gray-crowned Rosy-finch. Please remember to bring binoculars and appropriate layered clothing for summer weather at elevation. Also, don’t forget drinks and snacks/lunch for the duration of the trip.

Limited to 12 participants.
