Cowdrey Lake State Wildlife Area - Jackson County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: When not busy with boaters, this lake can be productive for waterbirds, including mixed flocks of geese, diving ducks and even loons in season. There is a nice patch of thick vegetation along its southeast corner, which attracts migrants. A Northern Waterthrush, probably from the breeding population in North Park, was seen here in August 2001.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Hedgerow/Shelterbelt
Directions: Cowdrey Lake is just west of CO 125 along CR 39 (unmarked, but there is a large green SWA sign marking the entrance) 1.5 miles south of Cowdrey, and 7.5 miles north of Walden.
