Cottonwood Marsh photo by Peter Burke

Walsh - Baca County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: The sewage ponds just east of town are much better than they look--incredibly, they have produced Laughing Gull, among other great reports. Eurasian Collared-Dove abounds in the town, which can also be good for migrant landbirds, especially the City Park at Maplewood and Colorado.

Habitat: Urban/Suburban, Pond/Lake/Reservoir
Directions: From the intersection of US 287/385 and 160, 1.5 miles south of Springfield center, go east on US 160 for 18.5 miles to the town of Walsh. To reach the sewage ponds, bear right onto CR DD (Maplewood St.) just before entering Walsh on US route 160, and follow Maplewood Street to the east end of town and turn left (north) onto N. Hawaii Street. The sewage ponds are just east of N. Hawaii Street along a small track (which is the eastward extension of Ash Street), just over 1 block north of Maplewood Street.
