Event Details

Please join us for a relaxing morning as we explore birds at the south end of South Platte Park. This part of the park has multiple opportunities to view birds that are drawn to lakes and rivers. In mid-March, we will expect to see a number of waterfowl as they begin breeding season. Our target birds include the Northern Shoveler, Mallard, Wood Duck, Bufflehead, Hooded Merganser, Gadwall, Green-winged Teal and possible appearance of Blue-winged Teal and Cinnamon Teal. Raptors such as the Red-tailed Hawk, American Kestrel, and Bald Eagle are frequently observed in this area. The plan is to walk for up to 2 miles on fairly flat trails that are hard packed dirt and rock and cement. About half of the walk will be along a cement trail. The only restroom is at the beginning of the outing. It is a vault toilet with an accessible stall.

Birdwatchers of all levels are invited with beginner birders encouraged to join.

Meeting location: South Platte Park C-470 Trailhead, 5198 W. South Platte Reservoir Access Road. Meet at the middle parking lot near the restroom building.

It will be the middle of March so be ready for the varying weather conditions. There is a potential for snow, which could impede accessibility. 

Meeting Location: Please park at the parking lot next to the restroom.

Trip Leader: Cindy Breidenbach. Cindy will email all participants with final trip details a few days prior. If you have any questions, please reach out to her at thebreidenbachs1@comcast.net.
