Colorado Field Workshop Series

2022 - Hummingbirds

A birding workshop series dispersed across Colorado

The Colorado Field Workshop Series is an opportunity to improve your skills in identifying birds and put those skills into practice on trips close to home as trips are led throughout the state.  Each year's trip has a different focus with past series focusing on shorebirds. 

Hummingbirds 2022

The 2022 Colorado Field Workshop Series focuses on hummingbirds. Here's your opportunity to become familiar with the more subtle and challenging aspects of identifying the four hummingbirds we generally see in Colorado; including the hard-to-identify female and immature of these species. We will explore and learn more about the rare hummingbirds that also visit our state.  The field trips will allow participants to put what we learn in the online ID workshop into practice.

Field Trips

We will have a number of humming bird related field trips as part of this field workshop.

Timing & Location: July, August, and possibly into September at a variety of locations around Colorado.
Participants per trip: Generally 12 registrants per field trip but please see trip description for details.
Cost: $10 for CFO members & $20 for non-members.

Field Trips will be continuously added so check back often for new opportunities to register!
