The Walk the Wetlands event begins at the Denver Audubon Kingery Nature Center at 8 a.m. The group ventures along the South Platte River through open fields and deciduous woodland, and by ponds and marshes. The walk itself is about 3 miles and takes about 3.5 hours, the time varying mostly due to weather conditions. The past winter months over the years have afforded the opportunity to see our many resident birds as well as both late and irruptive migrants from the north. Among the resident birds that winter here are many species of ducks, both Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers, White-breasted Nuthatches, Northern Flickers, Townsend's Solitaires, and Cedar Waxwings. As for late migrants, anything* can show up.
The walk is led by Audubon Master Birders.
