Turks Pond State Wildlife Area - Baca County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This small pond can be surprisingly good for ducks, white geese and the occasional rarity. Little Blue Heron has occurred, and the trees around the lake are probably good for migrants in season. This SWA is closed to birders during the winter waterfowl hunting season.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir
Directions: From the north, go south on US 287/385 to CO 116 (37 miles south of Lamar), and turn left (east). Follow 116 for 14 miles to CR 39 and turn right (south). Go 5 miles and turn right (west) onto CR LL. CR LL dead-ends at Turks Pond after about a half mile.
