Dunckley Pass and Vaughn Lake

0

Just to the east of Ripple Creek Pass, the forest (and birds) here are fairly similar, with more meadows, and especially more aspen woodland. Dusky Grouse can be seen along this stretch of road with some regularity, and this part of Colorado has among the highest density of Northern Goshawk in the state. Watch also for Purple Martins in areas with abundant aspens, and Fox and Lincoln’s Sparrows in willow-choked drainages.
