Highlights of February FCAS Field Trips
February 9, 2014. Leader: John Shenot
A hardy group of nine birders hiked in the cold and snow at Bobcat Ridge Natural Area on February 9 and tallied 27 species—not bad for a cold, foggy February day! The rewards included observations of a Golden Eagle, a Canyon Wren, two Cassin’s Finches, and a flyover Common Redpoll identified by its call (good sleuthing!).
The February 15 trip to Prospect Ponds also attracted nine birders who observed over 30 species at this City of Fort Collins Natural Area (sometimes called Sharp Point Drive complex by birders) and at the adjacent CSU Environmental Learning Center. Highlights of this trip included Northern Pintails, two Bald Eagles, a Wilson's Snipe, and a Merlin.
