Ucolo Road almost straddles the Utah-Colorado border, but it's about a 1/4 mile into Utah. For 10 miles south to north the road passes through mostly shrubsteppe, disturbed grasslands, farms, and some patches of juniper. The windswept landscape is usually birded in conjunction with a loop starting on Hickman Flats,coming down Ucolo Road, then driving back to Monticello via Old Highway. You can pull off the road in various spots to scan trees and fields for birds, as well as just look for birds as you drive. Very few cars use the road except for locals, so you might be the only people in the area.
Making the loop back towards Old Highway from Hickman Flats, Ucolo Road will give you more shots at species typical of the juniper in the area, like: JUNIPER TITMOUSE, BEWICK'S WREN, and MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD. The patches of sagebrush in between are good for LARK, VESPER, and BREWER'S SPARROW, while keeping an eye to the sky you might see SHARP-SHINNED, COOPER'S, or RED-TAILED HAWK. Much like Old Highway this area is rarely visited by birders so the information on status and distribution of species here is quite limited.
From the intersection Main and Center Streets in Monticello, head east on Center Street for 5.3 miles. Turn left onto Hallers for .3 miles at which point you will turn right onto Old Highway. Go 9.8 miles and the road will turn to the north into Ucolo Road, which continues north for 10.7 miles.
