See what ducks can be found on the South Platte as they arrive from northern climes. We’ll walk 2 to 3 miles along the river near C-470, on both paved and dirt trails, and possibly encounter mergansers, Green-winged Teal, and Northern Pintail. Birders of all abilities are welcome. Adults only, please.
Be sure to bring water, snacks, sunscreen, hats and binoculars (a few pairs are available to borrow). Please note that this field trip is not accessible to those with mobility challenges.
Location details will be given to those who register. Let’s go birding
