Roselawn Cemetery, a pioneer cemetery in the small town of Blende near Pueblo, is full of huge old trees that can attract migrants in spring and fall and flocks of mountain birds in search of evergreens in winter. Sometimes there are impressive irruptions of finches or waxwings here, and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker sometimes winters. In addition, there is a small duck pond that can attract waterfowl.
