Meadow Rd., Rafter J subdivision - La Plata County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: There is a small colony of resident Acorn Woodpeckers west of Durango in the Rafter J subdivision.

Habitat: Scrub Oak Forest
Directions: From downtown Durango go west on US 160 about 3 miles and turn left (south) on Wildcat Canyon Road (CR 141). Go west on CR 141 for about 3 miles and look for the Rafter J Subdivision sign on the right. Turn right on Meadow Road and go 1.5 miles, at which point there is a Y intersection, both forks changing from asphalt to dirt. Take the right fork downhill for 0.6 miles. On the right you will find several large dead Ponderosa pines, the first of which is behind a brown and cream mobile home. The woodpeckers are usually in this tree or nearby.
