Gallinas Canyon - Baca County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Yet another Baca County canyon, this one is mostly privately owned, but with a decent roadside riparian grove (bird it from the road). Check here for migrants and Lewis' Woodpeckers, and on the canyon sides for Wild Turkey, PJ birds and rimrock specialties. A mile or two north of the Oklahoma border there is a National Grasslands pasture with a rough road running into it (look for the sign for the Riparian Initiative). This will get you into some of the same habitat, but allow you to explore more thoroughly.

Habitat: Lowland Riparian, Grassland/Prairie, Pinyon-Juniper Forest
Directions: Go south on US 287/385 to CR M (18 miles south of Springfield) and go west on CR M. Thirteen miles west of the highway, turn left (south) onto GR 13. Bird this whole road down to the Oklahoma border.
