La Plata County Road 136 - La Plata County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This county road transverses pinyon/juniper, scrub, and grassland in the southwestern part of the county. It is the most reliable place to find Cassin's Kingbirds which are about 5 miles south from CR 141 (Wildcat Canyon Road). Gray Flycatchers are also here. This road can be impassable when wet and the land is private or Southern Ute reservation, so birding is limited to the road.

Habitat: Pinyon/Juniper Forest, Scrub Oak Forest, Grassland/Prairie
Directions: From downtown Durango go west on US 160 about 3 miles and turn left (south) on Wildcat Canyon Road (CR 141). After about 8 miles CR 136 turns off to the left (southwest). The Cassin's Kingbirds are usually several miles down this road.
