FCAS Presents

Important Update

Unfortunately, the guest speaker for our September 9 program has been called out of town on business. He will give his presentation remotely via Zoom rather than in person at the Fort Collins Senior Center. However, FCAS will host a "watch party" for the presentation live at the Senior Center for those who want to interact with fellow Audubon members in person. We ask that those attending in person wear masks to the meeting, even if they are fully vaccinated. Those of you that feel uncomfortable with meeting at the Senior Center can still participate in our meeting via Zoom from home.

Nick Komar,
President, Colorado Field Ornithologists

Nick Komar will summarize some of the more interesting and rare species of birds that show up in our local birding area, and strategies he uses to find them. He will share what birders look for during fall migration in northern Colorado, focusing on species that only or primarily occur during fall migration (but not in spring), such as Calliope and Rufous Hummingbirds, jaegers, scoters, uncommon loons, Sabine’s and Little Gulls and certain shorebirds species like Buff-breasted Sandpiper. For each of these he will briefly describe their life history, review their identification and indicate where to find them as they migrate south through our local birding area.

Nick Komar is the current President of Colorado Field Ornithologists (since 2019). He leads numerous birding field trips and bird identification workshops for birding organizations in Colorado. He also guides professionally for Partnership in International Birding and his own tour company Quetzal Tours, which specializes in tours to Central and South America.

Nick Komar is a biologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Fort Collins.
