Comanche Creek Road (CR 61-69) - Elbert County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This road north of CO 86 parallels its namesake for several miles, and although the lowland riparian habitat is private, it is in several places close enough to the road to be easily birdable. If you head east on CR 150 for 0.7 miles, you'll come down off some bluffs through a belt of ponderosa forest. This area has the likes of Cassin's Kingbird, Spotted Towhee and Black-headed Grosbeak, and Bank Swallow has been seen in summer over the bluffs, so may breed there.

Habitat: Lowland Riparian
Directions: From CO 86 about five miles east of Kiowa, head north on Comanche Creek Road (CR 61-69). CR 150 is about 5.5 miles north of the highway.
