We'll check the creek for lingering waterfowl and listen and watch for songbirds, woodpeckers, grackles, jays, and maybe even early herons and egrets. If there's time, we'll also bird the Rocky Mountain Arsenal portion of the same First Creek trail to the west. Expect to walk 3-4 miles on level ground. Dress for the weather and bring water and snacks.
