This famous urban migrant trap greenbelt will be the location for this field trip. This greenbelt protects a nice wide swath of mature riparian cottonwood forest along Clear Creek that stretches more than a mile between Youngfield and Kipling streets, encompassing four ponds and quite a bit of brushy marsh and swampy second growth. Birds seen at this location at this time of year include Townsend's Warbler, Solitary Sandpiper, Warbling Vireo, and Hermit Thrush. Let's explore and see what the day will bring!
We'll meet at the Youngfield Street parking lot, which is on the left (east) side of Youngfield just after the Clear Creek bridge.
