Hot Sulphur Springs State Wildlife Area
This State Wildlife Area actually has seven different units scattered across a wide area, but the best one for birding is the Joe Gerrans Unit at the junction of Beaver Creek and the Colorado River. The area contains a good example of mid-elevation riparian habitat, where willows and spruces meet, providing nesting habitat for Swainson’s Thrush, Wilson’s Warbler, and Red-naped Sapsucker, among others. Restrooms and primitive campsites are the only amenities.
