Resources for Birders

Metro Map

The Colorado County Birding Guide, sponsored by our partners at Colorado FIeld Ornithologists, is a great resource for finding the hotspots and local birding patches for an enjoyable morning or even a full day. The following counties are within about an hour drive of Denver and, whether you are a resident or just visiting, these pages should give you some ideas for where to find good birds. Our Front Range may have a large population but we also have a lot of splendid habitat!
