Click on the link to Todd Deininger's map (Thanks Todd!!!). Ward can sometimes be hit or miss, but the lower Ward feeders will often have Pine Grosbeaks and some Rosy's. As is often the case with winter feeders in the mountains, the feeders are often typically productive during and after foul weather (snow). As always be respectful of both the birds' and the homeowners' rights. Watch from a distance, avoid pointing binoculars toward house windows, keep groups small, don't be loud, park safely and legally, etc. so that birding access continues to be allowed. Most often in Ward, its better to park where its safe and walk to the feeders.
