Description: The largest town and county seat of Baca County has some trees worth checking for migrants in season. Mississippi Kite, Great-tailed Grackle and Eurasian Collared-Dove breed right in town. Check especially the trees in the city park (two blocks west of Main between 4th and 5th) and around the Baca County Courthouse (on the west side of Main between 7th and 8th). The only hotels in all of Baca County are here. Every March Springfield hosts the Equinox Festival, which includes guided tours of prairie-chicken leks, the rock art sites in Picture Canyon, and more.
