Dinosaur National Monument (Deerlodge Park)

0

Probably the area of Dinosaur National Monument least visited by birders, Deerlodge Park is mostly used as a rafting launch site for people floating the Yampa. But it also has one of the most extensive riparian patches in northwestern Colorado, as well as abundant pinyon-juniper forest and cliffs. In the riparian areas look for Black-headed Grosbeak, Cooper’s Hawk, Yellow Warbler, Warbling Vireo, Eastern Kingbird, and Downy Woodpecker, while the ‘PJ’ hosts Virginia’s and Black-throated Gray Warblers, Say’s Phoebe, Rock and Canyon Wrens, and Western Scrub-Jay.
