Clear Springs Ranch (formerly Hanna Ranch) - El Paso County
Aliases: Hannah Ranch
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Located just east of I-25 in the southern part of the county, this park is another great migrant spot. The west side of the park is no longer accessible to the public. Fountain Creek runs along the eastern portion of the park, while there are some agricultural fields on the western side. This is probably the best spot in the county to look for Lewis's and Red-headed Woodpeckers. Least Flycatchers have been seen here during the breeding season although there has been no confirmation of breeding. Yellow-breasted Chats and Blue Grosbeaks can usually be found in season. This location is under-birded during the winter months but could hold some nice birds.

Habitat: Lowland Riparian
Directions: From I-25 take Exit 123 and head east. Follow the signs to the parking area.
