Bluebird boxes will appear on the fence posts as you ascend the pass. Once at the top of the pass, land is public. Drop down along Wood Creek. While the trailheads and trails provide only moderate birding opportunities, riparian zones between the trailheads are good for nesting warblers. Check high slopes for Lewis’s Woodpecker and nesting Red-tailed
Hawk. Eventually you get to the town of Prairie on the main plateau and again all land is private and fenced. Western
and Mountain Bluebirds, Western Wood-Pewee, Sandhill Crane, American Dipper, Sage Thrasher, Bobolink, Vaux’s Swift, Brewer’s and Chipping Sparrows, hummingbirds, and swallows can all be found.
