Verhoeff Reservoir - Bent County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This privately owned reservoir is frustratingly hard to scan, but often contains huge flocks of waterbirds and shorebirds. It must be scanned from US 50, which means many small birds may not be identifiable, but most ducks and some rarities such as Tricolored Heron that have occurred here may be identifiable from the road with a scope. Absolutely do not trespass here.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Marsh
Directions: Verhoeff Reservoir is on the south side of US 50 three miles east of the town of Hasty, between Las Animas and Lamar.
