Join us for a fun and casual 2-hour bird-walk led by a knowledgeable birding guide from the Weminuche Audubon Society. These outings are designed to introduce you to the diverse community of birds that spend their summer at Chimney Rock National Monument. Birders of all skill levels are welcome to participate. Your guide will help you identify various species and explain the unique adaptations that allow these birds to survive here. Participants will be walking slowly on uneven terrain in the lower area of CRNM (no archaeological sites are included on this tour). Good walking shoes are advised, along with plenty of water and sun protection. Bring binoculars if you have them. We will have several pairs of binoculars available to borrow if you don' t have your own. Not recommended for young children.
