A team of Wild Connections, USFS & @birdconservancyoftherockies are banding #browncappedrosyfinch this week in South Park! Brown-capped Rosy Finch breeding range is almost entirely in CO, however their numbers have declined 95% over the last 50 years. This data will help the Bird Conservancy better understand this alarming decline. More info at: https://birdconservancy.org/sirens-of-the-mountaintops/ Special thanks to Wild Connections’ @misiballard for photos and hosting this event.

Great Wildcat Canyon Hike with spectacular views this weekend led by WC member @curtnimz . Deer and bobcat sightings, along with plenty of other signs of wildlife, illustrates the importance of this wildlife habitat. Unfortunately illegal motorized use was apparent in the area as well. Wild Connections is working to protect Wildcat Canyon for wildlife, fish, water, and wilderness values. Photo @misiballard . #ourpubliclands #wildcolorado #usfs
