Spend a lovely Friday morning at one of the best locations in Boulder County to see a high number of birds in late May—Walden Ponds in eastern Boulder County. This habitat is a true success story. These reclaimed gravel pits along Boulder Creek now support waterfowl, marsh-nesting species, and birds of cottonwood-willow river bottoms. We'll search for warblers and orioles, check out the Osprey nest, and delight in the swallows flying above the many ponds we'll see. And oh, so much more. Restrooms and ADA parking spots are available.
The terrain is primarily flat, (mostly dirt trails) including the boardwalk, that goes through a marsh, located near the Cottonwood Marsh entrance.
Linda Lee, a 2021-2022 Master Birder candidate who has birded at Walden Ponds for many years, will lead this guided bird outing.
