Bird Watching

Prairie BirdMoffat County has something to offer just about every birder, from grouse leks to great water and marsh birding, and even some decent migrant traps. Moffat County is also the only place in the state to find Ruffed Grouse, probably the most geographically limited and rarest breeding species in the state.

Moffat County is home to around 295 bird species, including herons, cranes, ibises, avocets and stilts. This diversity is a reflection of the wide variety of habitats to be found in Colorado’s second largest county: from Pinyon-Juniper forests and Aspen Grove to Rimrock Mesa, Lowland Riparian and many more.
