Southwestern Willow Flycatcher

Southwestern Willow Flycatchers

Each spring and summer, we conduct presence/absence surveys for the federally endangered Southwestern Willow Flycatcher. In New Mexico, annual survey sites include a canyon east of Bluewater Lake in Cibola County, two riparian sites in Sandoval County, the Santa Fe River in Santa Fe County, Rio Truchas in Rio Arriba County, and the Orilla Verde Recreation Area in Taos County. In Colorado, we survey 10-20 sites during some years in the San Luis Valley, including several sites along the Rio Grande. Data on Willow Flycatcher use will help direct management efforts at local sites.
