Little Cottonwood Canyon can be quite interesting, but there are not many places to park and access the surrounding terrain. Tanner’s Flat Campground, about halfway up Little Cottonwood, offers both. The campground is heavily vegetated in aspens and conifers, and Little Cottonwood Creek borders the area to the south. Specialty birds: Blue Grouse; Three-toed Woodpecker; Hammond’s and Dusky Flycatchers; Western Wood-Pewee; Olive-sided Flycatcher; Clark’s Nutcracker; American Dipper; Townsend’s Solitaire; Swainson’s Thrush; American Pipit; Green-tailed Towhee; Lazuli Bunting; Black Rosy-Finch; Pine Grosbeak; Red Crossbill. Other key birds: Cooper’s Hawk; Black-chinned, Broad-tailed, Calliope, and Rufous (late July-August) Hummingbirds; Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers; Cordilleran Flycatcher; Warbling Vireo; Steller’s Jay; Tree, Violet-green, and Cliff Swallows; Mountain Chickadee; Redbreasted and White-breasted Nuthatches; Ruby-crowned Kinglet; Mountain Bluebird; Hermit Thrush; Orange-crowned, Virginia’s, Yellow, Yellow-rumped, and MacGillivray’s Warblers; Western Tanager; Chipping, Vesper, Song, and White-crowned Sparrows; Cassin’s Finch; Pine Siskin; American Goldfinch.
