Georgia Pass Road

Aliases: Michigan Creek Campground, Teter State Wildlife Area

A pleasant backroad into the high country, the Georgia Pass Road is a good place to look for the full suite of montane passerines. Look and listen for Cordilleran and Dusky Flycatchers, Red Crossbill, Mountain Bluebird, Violet-green Swallow, Fox Sparrow (in the extensive willow carrs), Wilson’s Warbler, and more. A nighttime visit to the higher parts of the pass could produce Northern Saw-whet or, with a good deal of luck, Boreal Owls.  Also look out for a diversity of mammals, butterflies, and wildflowers.
