Habitat and Birds
Mostly farmland but some canyon-lands and grasslands. Check this area in winter for Horned Lark flocks on the road. Lapland Longspurs can be found mixed in with the larks. Sparrows are good here in early winter. Fox, Lincoln’s, and Golden-crowns have all been found here. Ring-necked Pheasant can be seen in the fields and Yellow-breasted Chat are sometimes found in the riparian areas.
