The diverse landscapes around Montrose are home to a tremendous variety of birds and other wildlife.

One of Colorado’s 40 Birding Trails is anchored by, and named after, the Black Canyon, which furnishes a home for the Great Horned Owl, American Dipper, Stellar’s Jay and migratory species that include Peregrine Falcons, White-throated Swifts, Mountain Bluebirds and Canyon Wrens.

In additional to the Black Canyon itself, the trail features several birding sites within a short distance of Montrose, such as the riparian areas adjoining the trails in Montrose’s Cerise Park. 

Take a gander at the detailed information available for each of the sites along the Black Canyon Trail.
