Birds

Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch, west of Loveland, Colorado, encompasses about 3200 acres, 5 square miles of foothills beauty, a naturalist’s paradise.

This is "up-and-down country." Elevations range from 5140 ft. along the Big Thompson River in the Big Valley to 7340 ft. on the north slope of Palisade Mountain above Cedar Park. That is some 2200 feet of elevational range, a greater range than in 15 of the 50 states!

Hi, my name is Connie Kogler and I have the privilege of leading bird walks at the ranch.

This coming Saturday, Nov 19th, we will be meeting at 8:30 at the Hilltop Parking lot, that is across the bridge and and up the hill at the ranch. We may split into 2 or more groups depending on numbers with a couple friends helping me lead. We will be birding different areas of the ranch. After birding we will meet back at the Hilltop for a campfire and hot drinks. Cost is $12 and includes drinks. If you are writing a check, make it out to Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch. Please email me at zblueheron@gmail.com to reserve your spot!
