Riparian vegetation lines this entire route and steep canyons are interspersed with sloping grass-laden hillsides. Gray Catbirds (rare), Black-capped Chickadees, Canyon Wren, Rock Wren, Vaux’s Swift, White-throated Swift, Lazuli Bunting, Golden Eagle, Prairie Falcon, Chukar, Lewis’s Woodpecker, Western Kingbird, Black-headed Grosbeak and American Redstart (rare) can be found here. Red-eyed Vireo is a possibility and Yellow-breasted Chat are abundant in summer. Look for Gray-crowned Rosy-Finches in the rocky slopes and watch for redpolls in winter.
