Hebron Waterfowl Area - Jackson County
Aliases: Hebron Slough, Eighteen Islands Reservoir, Jackson County Road 34
Ownership: None Listed
Description: The Hebron Waterfowl Area, along Jackson CR 34, is an excellent spot to look for ducks, shorebirds, terns, and who knows what else. The shallow Eighteen Islands Reservoir is excellent for shorebirds and ducks, depending on water level. The large pond just west of here is better for ducks, and can have Black and Forster's Terns flying around. The Hebron Slough, just east of Eighteen Islands Reservoir, is fairly small, but should be checked for shorebirds and ducks.

County Road 34 can also be good for sparrows, including Lark Buntings, especially towards the western end. Keep an eye out for Greater Sage-Grouse in the sage flats along the eastern end of the road. Raptors abound along this road as well, with Swainson's and Rough-legged Hawks (depending on season), Prairie Falcon and Golden Eagle possible.

Habitat: reservoir, slough, sagebrush, agricultural
Directions: County Road 34 can be reached by either driving south from Walden on SR-125 for about 10 miles and turning right (west), or driving south on SR-14 for 17 miles and turning left (east). Hebron Waterfowl Area is about mid-way along this road. CR 34 is about 17 miles north of Muddy Pass along SR-14, and about 22 miles north of Willow Creek Pass along SR-125
