(Birding Hotspots of South-central Colorado by John J. Rawinski.)
The stockade itself is on land owned by the State Historical Society, the adjacent lands are managed by the BLM.
Side note: I believe this site is also known to have about 90% of all mosquitoes in Colorado!
Despite all the mosquitoes, we did see quite a few birds, including a lifer for us:
While our friends are seeing lots of bears and moose, guess what we see a lot of ?
Porcupines in trees!
It was a beautiful Colorado day and we enjoyed being out and about.
