Audubon's 122nd Christmas Bird Count is a holiday tradition – everyone welcome: beginners, intermediate, and advanced. The more eyes we have, the more birds we see. In partnership with National Audubon, Denver Audubon supports the bird count within the Denver Urban circle on Saturday, January 1, 2022.
We’ll meet at the parking lot just north of City of Cuernavaca Park (20th and Platte St.) at 8:30 a.m. See the map of the meeting place and major stops. Per the map, please note that Little Raven St., which intersects 20th St., can be accessed from 20th St. or from 15th St. The Denver Skate Park, which is on 19th St., crosses the river to intersect with Platte St. From City of Cuernavaca Park, we will walk through Commons Park to Confluence Park (Cherry Creek), return to our cars, and drive/carpool to Globeville Landing Park (38th and Ringsby Court) to arrive at approximately 10:30 a.m. (We may take a break around 9:45 a.m. for a warm-up at a café near the Cherry Creek/South Platte confluence.) We will then make a stop at Northside Park (54th and Franklin near the National Guard Armory) around 11:30 a.m. and then, weather permitting, proceed to Riverside Cemetery. All but the most stalwart birders will be done in by 1:00 p.m.
You are, of course, invited to the Annual Chili Supper at 400 S. Williams St. (Washington Park United Church of Christ). The official start time for the chili supper is 5:00 p.m. It is a "Pot Luck" affair. Chili and soft drinks are provided; if you plan to attend the potluck please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be prepared to donate $5 to the Audubon cause, and we hope you will join us. The Denver Urban Count is a great way to start the New Year. Casey Davenhill, area count leader, will bring healthy cookies but you may want to bring water, snacks, and other refreshments. For more information, please contact area count leader Casey Davenhill at email@example.com or 303-345-1675 (text messages are best).
