Tips for birding Sheep Crossing
Access to the West Fork of the Little Colorado River here has typical breeding riparian birds of the area, including American Dipper and Orange-crowned Warbler. Look also for Gray Jay and American Three-Toed Woodpecker. A trail from here leads up Mount Baldy, where higher elevation birds such as Pine Grosbeak and Dusky Grouse may be found.
