Goldfield

0

In winter, this tiny hamlet just north of Victor may be the most reliable spot in the county for Rosy-Finches. If present, the flock should not take long to find, as it usually spends a good deal of time perched in the tops of the few spruce trees. Unlike most Rosy-Finch flocks in Colorado, the ones here may be 80% or more Black.
