La Junta - Otero County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: The largest town in Otero County is also a fine birding town, with a good sized city park, many large trees, and a good cemetery with many conifers. The town park, which has many large, but sparse, trees, and a small pond, may be worth a look in migration. The small pond in the middle of the park often has some ducks on it, and is a reliable spot to see Wood Duck. Fairview Cemetery, on the west side of town, has many large conifers, though no undergrowth, and sometimes has winter finches in good years, and could also be good for migrants. Mississippi Kites have nested both here and at the town park. Finally, just walking around town and checking the many large trees could be worth your while.
Habitat: Urban/Suburban, Park/Cemetery, Pond/Lake/Reservoir
Directions: La Junta is along US 50 east of Pueblo.
