 Miramonte Reservoir and Vicinity - October 20

Look for migrating ducks and shorebirds at this seldom visited reservoir in San Miguel County. The Don Noble State Wildlife Area hosts good numbers of waterbirds and raptors during fall. The reservoir is approximately an hour and forty-five minutes from Montrose so we’ll need an early start. For those coming from Montrose who want to carpool, meet at Gold’s Gym at the corner of Hillcrest and East Main Street in Montrose at 7:00 AM, at the Ridgway Visitor Center at the southwest corner of Highway 550 and Highway 62 at 7:30 AM, or at the first parking lot at the Don Noble State Wildlife area at 8:45 to 9 AM. We expect to wrap up birding around 1:00 PM, before heading home.

Be sure to dress in layers, and bring a lunch, snacks, water and a spotting scope if you have one.

Ridgway State Park - November 13

Ridgway State Park in November can host a variety of migrating birds, including ducks, gulls, shorebirds, and late migrant songbirds. The state park charges a $9.00 day use fee per vehicle, but we’ll meet at the Visitor Center near the Dutch Charlie entrance at 8:00 AM and see if we can carpool with annual pass holders to minimize expenses. We’ll wrap up just before NOON. Dress in layers, bring water and a lunch or snacks, and a spotting scope if you have one.
