Trout Creek Marshes - Chaffee County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: (Submitted by Nathan Pieplow): The nice beaver pond marshes at the beginning of CR 307 are an extension of those on the south side of US 24/285 to the west of here. The entire stretch is reliable for such things as Song Sparrow, Yellow Warbler and Red-winged Blackbird. Sora has been found near the junction of CR 307 and CR 187, and Virginia Rail is also certainly in the area.

Habitat: Marsh, Streamside Willow
Directions: From Johnson Village, head east on US 24/285 about five miles to CR 307 on the right. The most easily accessible marshes are on the right (south) side of 307 for the next few hundred meters. Some are on private property and must be birded from the road.
