Fairmount Cemetery - Denver County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This large cemetery is the best birding cemetery in the metro area, recalling Grandview Cemetery in Fort Collins. Few bird this location, despite its potential to yield many migrants and evergreen specialists. Many of the trees are not trimmed close to the ground, unlike those in most cemeteries in Colorado, which increases the potential for skulkers and other ground-dwelling species. One strategy is to walk along the High Line Canal Trail, which passes conveniently through the cemetery, and is a good spot for Spotted Towhee and other sparrows. A minima Cackling Goose was seen here one winter, so don't limit yourself to looking at landbirds!

Habitat: Cemetery
Directions: From I-25, take the Colorado exit and head north till you reach Alameda. Head east on Alameda about a mile and a half to the entrance for the cemetery, on the right.
