Join local naturalist Nathan Pieplow, author of the Peterson Field Guide to Bird Sounds of North America, on a walk to learn the summer sounds of the Colorado mountains. Nathan will discuss ways to listen to and describe bird sounds, teach identification of some common singers, and answer questions about what the birds are saying to one another. Participants can expect to hear 15-20 different species as we walk the trails at Caribou Ranch.
