When we lived in Colorado, watching the pelicans hang out near Denver at the office park water features/ponds was a treat.We have a couple of bird feeders in our back yard and our regular visitors are chickadees, doves, cardinals,
I walkdown our Waterfront Trail most days and have seen a variety of larger birds here. I am not a birder, but have found that serious birders are always willing to help me identify birds and will often lend me their binoculars for a closer look.
A pair of mute swans are regulars at the marsh north of the trail. Here is one of them.

An egret often visits the marsh as well. I see a duck grooming beside him.

We also see a number of great blue herons.

And more Canada geese than you can count. These guys used to fly south in the fall, but they mostly winter over these days.
