James M. Robb – Colorado River State Park, Fruita Section
The westernmost unit of the Colorado River State Park is also one of the best to base out of if you’re visiting the Grand Junction area and camping. Like the other units, it has good access to the riparian woods along the Colorado River, as well as a couple of small ponds that sometimes have ducks on them. Great-tailed Grackles frequent the camping area, and migration birding can be productive. In the winter time watch for various sparrows, accipiters preying on them (Sharp-shinned and Cooper’s are both regular), and maybe a Northern Shrike.
