Rico - Dolores County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: If you visit this small mountain town in the winter you will be forgiven for thinking it is a ghost town. In the summer it is Telluride South, with a great restaurant and abundant feeders. Cruise the newer housing developments on the west side of the river and check for hummingbird and seed feeders. Dippers and kingfishers can be seen downstream from Rico along the highway. The sewage-type ponds just north of town look good but have not yet produced any birds of interest.
Habitat: Mixed Conifer Forest, Stream, Streamside Willow
Directions: Rico is along CO 145 between Cortez and Telluride.
