A beautiful area of pristine pinyon-juniper woodland, Stadtman Mesa is a good location to search for the typical suite of ‘PJ’ birds, including Pinyon Jay, Juniper Titmouse, Black-throated Gray Warbler, and more. Rocky areas may have Rock and Canyon Wrens. At night listen for Common Poorwill, and, with a good deal of luck, Northern Pygmy-Owl.
