Goldfield - Teller County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: (submitted by Andrew Spencer) In winter, this tiny hamlet just north of Victor may be the most reliable spot in the county for Rosy-Finches. If present, the flock should not take long to find, as it usually spends a good deal of time perched in the tops of the few spruce trees. Unlike most Rosy-Finch flocks in Colorado, the ones here may be 80% or more Black.

Habitat: Urban/Suburban
Directions: From the junction of US 24 and CO 67 in Divide, head south on CO 67 for 13.5 miles to CR 81, which forks off to the left. Follow CR 81 for 5.5 miles to the town of Goldfield.
