Event Details

  • Come join us for our third trip of the season along Raptor Alley in Nunn--this time with our friends from Colorado State University's Field Ornithology Club--it is our annual trip!

    Our trip on 1/18 netted 53 raptors we'll hope for the same.

    Raptor Alley is a driving tour starting at 0830 usually lasting until about 2 pm with few stops for bathroom breaks and/or food (Plains Market in Pierce and the new Nunn gas station, Soaring V Gas, which is on the southwest corner of Weld CR 100 and Hwy 85. We'll meet here (the big red building).

    The "Nunn Guy" (Gary Lefko) leads monthly tours starting in October and running through February. The tour can see most expected raptors and the quantity of birds can range from ~15 to over 70 (on a super day!).

    The driving tour follows a specific route, stops for all raptors and scans areas for potential birds. Remember to have your cameras ready as there will be plenty of opportunities for great photos. We'll take time to examine the birds beyond their basic identification--try to figure out which age, sex, race, morph, etc. it may be.
