· South Park
Fairplay is THE major town in South Park, and a good place to stock up or spend the night during a trip to the area. Bird-wise, during winter months, there are occasional flocks of rosy-finches in town, while other typical urban species such as Eurasian Collared-Dove can be found throughout the year. If you plan to make a trip of it, there are a number of State Wildlife Areas in the region to consider; however, check Colorado Parks and Wildlife for seasonal restrictions.
