Southeast Corner of Colorado - Baca County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Only accessible from Kansas or Oklahoma, this remote part of Colorado is seldom visited but can produce some good birds. The only recent record of Barred Owl in the state is from where the Cimarron River leaves the state on the Kansas border. This area is also the best in the state to search for Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. Look also for Long-billed Curlew and Rock Wren.

Habitat: Grassland/Prairie
Directions: From the town of Elkhart in extreme SW Kansas, go west on either Morton CR A (North St.) or B (Sherman St. and Texas CR 29) for 7.5 miles to the Colorado state line. There are only around 15 miles of road in the extreme SE corner, so chances for exploration are limited.
