Long Branch Creek - La Plata County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: The area just north of the New Mexico border along CO 140 may be worth checking in summer. The riparian area by the bridge over the creek has Blue Grosbeaks and the farm land just north of the state border on the west side of the highway has a small number of Gambel's Quail. Do not enter private property.

Habitat: Lowland Riparian, Grassland/Prairie
Directions: From Durango go west on US 160 about 10 miles and turn left (south) on CO 140. Long Branch Creek is about 2 miles south of the community of Redmesa. Further south and just north of the New Mexico border on the west side of SR 140 is farm land crossed by a few dirt roads.
