Pole Mountain Reservoir - Jackson County
Aliases:
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This small reservoir is among the best in the county to look for breeding ducks, and is likely quite good during fall migration as well. Nearly every duck species that breeds in North Park is found in numbers here, along with Eared and Western Grebes. Buffleheads can be found here during the summer, though it is unlikely they breed here. During fall migration look for divers and loons, and possibly gulls. Shorebirds are possible when the water level is sufficiently low.

Habitat: reservoir
Elevation:
