Yampa River State Park (river access points)

0

This is Colorado’s most wide-flung state park, but only the area around the headquarters is really worth birding. Here an excellent visitor center combines with beautiful riparian habitat and a nice nature trail to make for a good birding location. It is also a good spot to camp near Craig or Hayden. Look for species like Yellow-breasted Chat, Lazuli Bunting, Bullock’s Oriole, Downy Woodpecker, and others. Cooper’s and Red-tailed Hawks nest in the area, and Sandhill Cranes can often be seen in wet fields nearby. Rare riparian species such as Veery or Least Flycatcher are also sometimes seen. The Yampa is one of the most biologically intact rivers in the west, supporting at least four endangered and threatened fish species.
