It's ironic, isn't it?? The newly proposed toll road that would stretch north to south on the eastern plains to take some of the traffic off I-25 is called the Prairie Falcon Parkway Express. But birders aren't impressed. Gary Lefko, an ardent birder and creator of the Great Pikes Peak Bird Trail, says in an e-mail: "if this ever happens, great birding could be impacted at Barr Lake, the Arapahoe County reservoirs, Chico Basin and/or Bohart Ranches...parts of Pueblo's Arkansas River corridor, Ramah Reservoir, CPER, and 'parts in between.'"
