See wintering raptors during local field trips

The shortest month can be the longest month when you can’t get out because of the cold and snow.

But the shortest month can be the best time to hang with the Grand Valley Audubon Society and see wintering raptors across the Grand Valley.

The annual TUMACANABAC raptor field trips are set for two weekends,
Feb. 15-16 and Feb. 23-24. Each day is a separate trip across the northern edge of the valley from Grand Junction to Mack (and back).

Eagles, hawks and falcons are the goal, but there always is the chance to see the occasional owl and other winter visitors.

Please bring lunch, water, snack and binoculars. Expert birders and viewing scopes will be provided.

WHAT: The annual TUMACANABAC raptor field trips with the Grand Valley Audubon Society.

WHEN: 9 a.m. to (roughly) 3 p.m. on Feb. 15, 16, 23, 24.

WHERE: Meet each day at the Bureau of Land Management Office, H Road and Horizon Boulevard.
