Bird watching – Delta County is a birding haven. Whether it's a big year or just a splendid spring, hikers will want to keep an eye, camera and binoculars out for the winged heralds of springtime. High-elevation birds soar above Grand Mesa, and hikers who wait till dark can specialize in "owling." Additionally, White Pelicans, Wild Turkeys, Bald Eagles and many other birds of prey encourage birders to flock to Delta County.

For a day in town, Cedaredge, Crawford, Delta, Hotchkiss, Orchard City and Paonia offer old-time charm on quaint main streets within this agricultural region. Lovely spring weather makes a visit to these towns' local wineries, golf courses and parks a pleasant affair with nightly accommodations easily accessible.
