Guffey - Park County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: The area around this small town in southern Park County can be the best area to look for some birds that are otherwise found nowhere else in the county. Pinyon Jays have been seen more than once, usually in the ponderosa forest just north of the county line, and Common Poorwills and Bushtits are possible. Even Chihuahuan Raven might occur.

Habitat: Pinyon-Juniper Forest, Ponderosa Forest
Directions: From the junction of CO 9 and US 50, head north on CO 9 for 18 miles to the Park County line. Anywhere from here to the town of Guffey, in 4.5 miles can be good. From the junction of CR 59/102 with CO 9, follow the CRs through Guffey, and bear left when CR 59 splits off from CR 102. This road will eventually bring you to the southern end of Eleven Mile Reservoir.
