Protect Our Nesting Birds

The Audubon Society of Greater Denver would like to remind public works crews and those agencies responsible for tree trimming, that the nesting season of our native birds often overlaps with tree trimming practices. Each year, clutches of eggs and nests containing young birds are destroyed as a result of tree trimming in the local area. Please be aware that these nests, eggs, young birds, and sitting adults are protected under the federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act, 16 U.S.C. 703-712, and Colorado Statute 33-6-128, Damage or Destruction of Dens or Nests.

The dates you are most likely to find adults, eggs and/or young in the nests are May 1- August 15, although some hawks and owls start nesting as early as February. Please give your crews this information in order to help protect our nesting birds!
