John Rawinksi, local birding expert and author of “Birding Hotspots of South Central Colorado”, will lead a guided birding tour around Home Lake, a hot spot for waterfowl, shorebirds and bald eagles. John will share his extensive knowledge of local birds and where to find them. This tour is suitable for beginner to advanced birders and will involve walking for less than a mile, on level ground. Meet at the Monte Vista Middle School Parking lot opposite Home Lake, bring binoculars and dress for the weather! Spotting scopes, provided by Friends of the San Luis Valley National Wildlife Refuges, will be available for closer viewing on the lake.
