Upcoming Event- Hummingbird Day Bird Walk

The birds are out in force and the weather has been great for getting outside to bird!  With birds now wearing their vibrant plumage, singing their songs to attract mates and setting up territories, it's hard to miss the signs that spring is here!  Early movers are starting to come through, with my dad seeing some Common Grackles yesterday.  One bird that everyone loves that isn't here yet, though, is the hummingbird.  On April 14th we are going to be celebrating Hummingbird Day! To celebrate this event, Two Ponds NWR in Arvada, CO is going to have a guided hour long bird walk to try to track down hummers at this wonderful  refuge.  This will be followed up by an hour long presentation at City Pizza just down the street.  

Event Details: 
WHEN: Saturday, April 14th. Bird walk at Two Ponds from 7:30-8:30. Presentation to start when we all get to City Pizza.
WHERE: Two Ponds NWR and City Pizza. 
WHO: My dad(Nathan) and I will be leading the bird walk.  Dave Menough from Wild Birds Unlimited will be giving the presentation.
HOW MUCH: FREE!! Just bring yourself, friends, binoculars, cameras(if you want) and a love for birds!

If any more info comes up, I will post it to keep you all updated. Hope to see you all there and happy birding!
