Loudy Simpson Park

Welcome to northwestern Colorado’s best migrant trap! Excellent riparian habitat, combined with the island effect of being in the middle of Craig, makes this a superb place to look for a variety of passerine migrants during spring and fall migration. A half-mile loop trail goes through the best habitat, as well as a two-mile trail around the perimeter of the park. Breeding species such as Downy Woodpecker, Yellow-breasted Chat, and even the occasional Least Flycatcher add to the draw. Wintertime is quite a bit slower, but wintering sparrow flocks might be worth a look.
