202 Birding Wildrose Canyon
single location
Wildrose Canyon is an isolated riparian corridor and aspen grove in the Glass Mountain Range that hosts a variety of awesome species along its mile-long stretch--Calliope Hummingbird, Plumbeous Vireo, Cooper's Hawk, MacGillivray's Warbler, Dusky Flycatcher, and Lazuli Buntings are some species you may see. There is a chance to see (or hear) the elusive Virginia's Warbler. We'll focus on intermediate-advanced aural and visual birding skills, behavioral observation skills, and natural history of the species we encounter. Be prepared for potentially rugged and uneven terrain, as the unmaintained dirt road often washes out with spring runoff. Join Mary and Tom on a walk up this gem of a canyon--it's worth the drive! Bring water and sun protection, as well as snacks or lunch.
