On June 5, CHPAS welcomed the Foothills Audubon Club from Colorado on their visit to the Wyoming Hereford Ranch. A large group showed up and fun was had by all. Our visitors were astounded by the Ranch and so grateful that we have this Important Bird Area (IBA) in our Chapter region. CHPAS members make good use of this lovely area and are thankful for the Hales generous open-access policy. This is truly a birdwatchers paradise!
June 12 – Field Trip to Sybille Canyon
We will leave from the parking lot next to the Children’s Village at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens at 7:00 a.m. Plan to caravan; carpooling will be at the discretion of each driver. We will head north on I-25 and west on WY-34, about 88 miles to Sybille Canyon and the Tom Thorn/Beth Williams Wildlife Habitat Management Area.
In this foothills habitat, we will be looking for a variety of nesting birds from raptors to hummingbirds to warblers. There will be some hiking on uneven ground.
We hope that everyone participating will have had their Covid vaccine; wear your mask if you feel more comfortable with this extra level of protection. Bring water, clothes for changing weather, and a lunch or snacks. We expect to be finished by 1 or 2 p.m. and back to town by about 3 p.m., but you can leave whenever you wish if you drive yourself. Please contact Grant Frost at 307-343-2024 if you plan to join us so that we have a list of those expected and can let you know if the plans change for any reason.
