Meet Chuck Hundertmark

Chuck Hundertmark

I first became interested in birds in 7th or 8th grade, becoming a serious birder in 1964. After 30 years in New Mexico, I came to the Front Range in 1997. I most enjoy birds during the breeding season and have a particular interest in bird song and colonial waterbirds. I count cormorants, grebes, raptors and empidonax flycatchers among my favorite birds.

I prefer bird walks and hikes to car birding, but one of my favorite birding locations is North Park. There, drives between lakes are an important part of the birding. On field trips, I pay as much attention to listening for birds as looking for birds. I like to get beyond the "What bird is it?" question to the "What is the bird doing?" question.
