New birding trails complete

RBC I In a continuing effort to educate and spur interest in outdoor recreation, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is encouraging everyone to take time to explore the recently completed northwest section of the Colorado Birding Trail.
The latest addition adds 13 trails, which are expected to draw wildlife enthusiasts from across the country to Colorado, where they may encounter animals they may have never seen before.
The trails were made possible with Great Outdoors Colorado funds generated from the sales of lottery tickets.
The trails also give birders a chance to check-off a new species on their “life list.” Colorado is one of 40 states that have similarly organized birding trails.“The Colorado Birding Trail offers a unique and fun way for the whole family to experience our rich and abundant wildlife resource,” said Watchable Wildlife Coordinator Trina Romero. “There are a wide variety of species that some in the public have never seen. We anticipate many people will take advantage of this fantastic opportunity and see what living in Colorado is all about.”
Romero adds that along with hunting and fishing, the Colorado Birding Trail will benefit the local economies of many communities across the state that depend on revenue generated by outdoor recreation.
