We've talked about this, but yeah, Boulder, Colorado has great birding groups and places. Walden Ponds are a year-round hot spot (best birding during spring and fall migration): http://nuttybirder.com/Wheretobird/Colorado/waldenpond.html#.WcjqY62ZOu4

 

It's probably quiet there now because it's raining.

We are located in northern Colorado, along the Front Range (which is the east side of the Rockies).

 

Anybody else seeing fall migration yet?

We were cycling today, not bird watching. Still, we saw what we know to be good signs that the fall migration is happening: tons of sea gulls, family groups of Canada Geese, huge flocks of blackbirds and no pelicans.

 

Our local birdwatching groups are beginning to post fall outings, too. Hurrah!

Birdwatching: Local Open Space Parks

Our Parks and Recreation Department offers guided bird walks through select local open space parks. These are easy walks (about a mile over paved or gravel paths) and are lead by knowledgeable volunteers and staff. A great way to ease into birding.

 

Do you have such activities in your area?
