Buford Area

0

This small town along the Flat Tops Scenic Byway is the last place to stock up if you’re coming from Meeker. It’s also a good area to look at hummingbird feeders at the general store, which can have Black-chinned and Broad-tailed Hummingbirds. The Buford Road, which heads south from here towards I-70, passes through excellent aspen and mixed-conifer woodlands, with Purple Martin colonies, American Three-toed Woodpeckers at higher elevations, and chances for Dusky Grouse and Northern Goshawk. Along the main road below and above Buford watch for Sandhill Cranes and Bald Eagles along the riparian areas and fields. Elk and mule deer are often sighted along the road as well.
