    Is it early October? Then it must be Sprague’s Pipit time! This elusive bird comes through eastern Colorado like clockwork every fall. Because these Pipits’ habitat preferences are very specific, we can set up a field trip to maximize the chances of seeing these secretive birds with some accuracy.

    Join Bill who knows these prairie areas better than any other birder, for a weekend long trip to eastern CO to look for these elusive Pipits and other grassland denizens. For the target bird, you will visit a prime, private conservation ar-ea. Saturday night, you will stay in Wray, CO. Sunday, you will swing through southwestern Nebraska for other great birding areas before heading home. The route back will be determined according what places are hot or not. Meeting time and place will be arranged later.

    Pack lunches for Saturday and Sunday. Breakfast is provided by the motel on Sunday morning. On Saturday even-ing, there is a great restaurant in Wray named, “4th and Main”. The participants on the Prairie Chicken trip earlier this year very much enjoyed the dinner there. You will be responsible for making your own reservations at the Cob-blestone Inn, Wray, CO. I will call and reserve a block, so you should mention you are with the BCAS group for the price I have negotiated.
