For several years, Twin Willows Ranch has done bird monitoring in the property. During 2012 to 2013 the ranch  was a site of biodiversity by the Denver Zoo. Based on sample locations from these efforts, bird monitoring was again conducted by Mollie Walton since 2016 and continues to this day.

There has been 98 bird species recorded at Twin Willows. You can download our bird guide clicking bellow.


 At Twin Willows we shelter small domestic animals such as goats, dogs, and cats. 

Dogs and cats have appeared at the ranch,  they have been picked up from the roads, or from animal shelters. 

Our goats were adopted and they good companions for the horses.
