Saguache

0

This is a very small but pleasant town in the northwest part of the San Luis Valley. The trees in town can host migrant birds. Cruising the neighborhoods in search of feeders could result in sightings of Evening Grosbeaks, Cassin’s Finches, or goldfinches, especially in winter. The wet meadows along the highway south of town should be scanned for Wilson’s Snipe, ducks, and Great-tailed Grackle.
