In this Great Plains City, the best place to bird is Glenmere Park. The pond in the park attracts ducks and geese, and Snowy Egret and Black-crowned Night-Heron have nested on the island in the pond. Mississippi Kite have sometimes been seen in and around the park in late summer and early fall, and migrants can be attracted to the mature trees. Sanborn Park is another lake-based park that has a cove on the SW side that can have wood ducks, etc. There is a separate listing for the Cache LaPoudre Trail on the north side of the City.
