Comanche Creek Road (CR 61-69)
This road north of CO 86 parallels its namesake for several miles, and although the lowland riparian habitat is private, it is in several places close enough to the road to be easily birdable. If you head east on CR 150 for 0.7 miles, you’ll come down off some bluffs through a belt of ponderosa forest. This area has the likes of Cassin’s Kingbird, Spotted Towhee and Black-headed Grosbeak.
