Took a nice hike in the old Million Fire where I worked on restoration 16 years ago. Birding was good and the burn recovery very good too. Highlites of the birds were 2 Olive-sided Flycatchers, singing their "quick three beers" tune. Other nice birds for the morning included Brown Creeper, Western Tanager, Warbling Vireo, Western Wood-pewee, Dusky Flycatcher and Black-headed Grosbeak. To get here for an easy hike, start at the junction of Hwy 160 and Willow Park Road (a few miles east of South Fork). Drive up the Willow Park Road for 5.2 miles until you see a FS gate across a road on the right. Hike up this road for a nice birdwalk and view too. All in Rio Grande County.
