Accessible Cornish Area - Weld County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This area along CO 392 between Greeley and Briggsdale is easily checked on the way to Crow Valley and the PNG. The most reliable location for Upland Sandpiper in this area is along CO 392 between one and two miles northeast of "Cornish" (CO 392 x CR 74). The "Uppies" are best found early in summer and early in the morning. A large pasture good for Burrowing Owl and Mountain Plover is on the north side of CO 392, 2.2 miles southwest of "Cornish."

The seasonal ponds along CR 61 just north of CR 74 can be good for shorebirds, as can the pond 1.5 miles south of CR 74 along CR 59. Short-billed Dowitcher has shown up at the previous location.

Habitat: Grassland/Prairie, Pond/Lake/Reservoir
Directions: The "town" of Cornish is along CO 392, 16.5 miles east of the CO 392/US-85 intersection in Lucerne, and 10 miles southwest of Briggsdale.
