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 walk along the South Platte River in Adams County and into Denver county. The trip is all on a paved bike path, with minimal up and down. We'll see lots of ducks and white-cheeked geese, including Northern Pintails. There are usually Black-crowned Night-Herons at the Denver Water Treatment Plant and Wild Turkeys at 58th Ave, The starting point is East 74th Ave. at the South Platte River. Dress in layers as it can be cold on New Year's Day. Note that this field trip is accessible for those with mobility challenges.
