Douglas Creek

0

Douglas Creek is an island of riparian in the middle of pinyon-juniper woodland. Though privately owned, you can bird some of it from the road, and listen for birds hard to find in the area such as Yellow-breasted Chat, Bullock’s Oriole, Downy Woodpecker, and others. The pinyon-juniper forest, especially further up the creek, is in public property and can be a good spot to find Pinyon Jay, Canyon Wren, and Plumbeous Vireo. Chukars are a possibility in any area with more exposed rock.
