Best Avian Hotline Denver 2003 - Colorado Rare Bird Alert Hotline

So you're tooling along through a field, and suddenly you realize there's a pair of Eurasian wigeons right there in front of you. Who ya gonna call? The Rare Bird Alert Hotline, of course. The alert system, sponsored by the Denver Field Ornithologists and Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory, has been taking calls from rare-bird spotters since the mid-1980s. Spring migration brings hundreds of calls from amateur ornithologists, who are encouraged to leave precise directions to the location of the sighting so others can share and verify the report. Volunteers then compile the tips into a regularly updated recorded message of who's winging where.
