The largest town and county seat of Baca County has some trees worth checking for migrants in season. Mississippi Kite, Great-tailed Grackle and Chihuahuan Raven have been observed here. Check especially the trees in the city park (two blocks west of Main between 4th and 5th) and around the Baca County Courthouse (on the west side of Main between 7th and 8th). The water treatment plant, just outside of town, may be worth a visit, especially in winter. The only hotels in all of Baca County are here.
