Hahns Peak Lake

0

This small mountain lake usually isn’t worth a visit for waterbirds, but the excellent montane forest surrounding it is another story entirely. Mixed lodgepole and ponderosa pine, with a good dose of aspen, make this a good place to look for species like Olive-sided, Cordilleran, and Dusky Flycatchers, Williamson’s Sapsucker, and at night, Flammulated Owl.
