Ute Valley Park - El Paso County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: The craggy bluffs of Ute Valley Park isolate this area from surrounding urban sprawl. The park is home to many residents and breeders, including Plumbeous Vireo, Pygmy Nuthatch, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Green-tailed Towhee, Lazuli Bunting, and many others. On a good spring morning, a rapid circuit of the park can produce 40+ species. There are apparently no exceptional migrant records for the park, but this site is under-birded.

Habitat: Pinyon-Juniper Forest
Directions: From I-25, take Exit 147, Rockrimmon Boulevard, 1.5 miles west to Vindicator Drive. Follow Vindicator west for 0.7 mile; shortly before the intersection with Centennial Boulevard, turn left into the small parking area.
