Windy Gap Watchable Wildlife Area
There are almost always birds on this reservoir, including several species of ducks, Canada Geese, and often some gulls or terns in migration. The water is easy to scan from the parking lot of the watchable wildlife area along US 40, which is a good place for a picnic. Viewing scopes are available to help you scan the water. Wyoming ground squirrels can be seen near the parking lot, and the reintroduced population of river otter may be rarely glimpsed along the river upstream or downstream from the reservoir.
Directions: Windy Gap Reservoir is on the south side of US 40 at its junction with CO 125, about two miles west of Granby.
