Reservoirs along CO 149 - Mineral County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Two small reservoirs along the west side of CO 149 near the Hinsdale County border comprise the most easily viewable bodies of water in Mineral County. While neither is great, both deserve a look. A decent number of ducks have been found at these lakes, mostly dabblers, but with some of the more common divers mixed in, as well as Western and Eared Grebes. An intermediate Aechmophorus grebe was found at the southern lake, so keep an eye out for Clark's. Bald Eagles can be seen here in season.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir
Directions: The first pond is along the west side of state route 149, 18.5 miles west of Creede. It is best scanned from CO 149. The second pond is also along CO 149, and is best scanned from CR 520, which is left off 149, 1.5 miles past the first reservoir.
