Aliases: Turkey Creek State Wildlife Area
Pueblo West is a sprawling suburb of Pueblo. Driving the residential roads gives you a good chance of finding coveys of Scaled Quail scurrying between the cholla patches, and with some luck, you might find Curve-billed Thrasher. Also keep an eye out for Greater Roadrunner, Burrowing Owl, Ferruginous Hawk and Lark Bunting. Most of the birding here is done from the road; please be respectful of the owners when searching for birds in people’s yards.
