In an upcoming concert, the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra will play beautiful pieces inspired by birds: Sibelius’ 5th Symphony (the composer was blown away by the sight of 16 swans taking flight) and the lyrical Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughn Williams. Join naturalist Dave Sutherland for an early morning hike to sample this music ahead of the concert, and to spy on migrating waterfowl in our backyard – with luck, including some wild swans! Birders of all abilities welcome. Meet at Sawhill Ponds, 0.6 miles north of Valmont on 75th St. Bring gloves and binoculars. The hike is free and open to the public.
