Nepesta Marsh - Pueblo County
Aliases: Nepesta Road
Ownership: None Listed
Description: (submitted by Andrew Spencer) If you want to see (well, hear) a Black Rail in Pueblo County then you will have to come here (unless you get insanely lucky and find a migrating bird elsewhere in the county). Probably the second largest marsh in the Arkansas River Valley, this is an excellent place to clean up on rails in the county, and rarities like Least Bittern should be listened for as well. As usual when looking for marsh birds nighttime listening is likely the best bet.

Habitat: Marsh, Lowland Riparian
Directions: from Fowler, travel west on US-50 for just over 7 miles, and take a left onto Nepesta Road. Follow the road over the railroad tracks, following it around to the left, over the river, to the marsh on the right, about 1.5 miles from the highway.
