Green Mountain Falls - El Paso County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This is not what would be called a real destination but it is a great place to find montane species. Band-tailed Pigeons can be found here quite reliably and have even been staying over through the winter at this location in recent years. All three nuthatches, Evening Grosbeak, four species of hummingbird (each in season) and a number of corvids are reliably found here. Most of the birding is by car. There are places to park around town and then walk around the neighborhoods.

Habitat: Foothill Shrub, Mixed-Conifer Forest
Directions: From I-25 go west on Highway 24 (exit 141) approximately 13.7 miles to Green Mountain Falls Road. There are a number of exits and any are fine. But the farthest exit as described seems to be the best for finding birds.
