Birding Close To Home: Love Letter to City Park
Patrick O'Driscoll, from the Hale-Belleview neighborhood, is a birder and field trip leader for Denver Field Ornithologists ( www.dfobirds.org ). He has led outings every month or two in City Park for 4 years. Patrick reports that the Pinetum grove beneath the Denver Museum of Nature and Science's south wall is a great spot for birds in a park filled with many kinds of birds (at least 174 species have been recorded in City Park). Below is a link to his article and his birder's love letter to City Park in the February issue of The Lark Bunting, Official Newsletter of the Denver Field Ornithologists. Scroll to page 12:
