Birding at The Springs Resort: Exploring the Unique Geothermal Wetlands of Pagosa Springs
In the heart of Pagosa Springs, Colorado, you’ll find The Springs Resort, a hot springs destination known widely for its geothermal soaking pools and wild surroundings. Guests of The Springs enjoy stunning views of the San Juan River along the property. Partly because of the mountain town’s tranquil atmosphere and chiefly because the property runs into Pagosa Springs Riverwalk Wetlands, the experience can unexpectedly become a birder’s paradise. The great blue heron, dabbling and diving ducks such as cinnamon teal or common merganser, and even an occasional barn swallow are some of the many avifaunae visitors observe at this unsuspecting birdwatching hotspot.
