Turk's Pond SWA
Description: Check this small pond for ducks during the fall and spring, and shorebirds if the water is low. The few small trees around the lake could contain migrants in season, and sparrows during the winter. The small pond across from the entrance road often has as many ducks as Turk's Pond does. Other wildlife here can include white-tailed deer, rabbits, foxes, raccoons, reptiles and amphibians.
Directions: From the north, go south on US 287/385 to CO 116 (37 miles south of Lamar), and turn left (east). Follow 116 for 14 miles to CR 39 and turn right (south). Go 5 miles and turn right (west) onto CR LL. CR LL dead-ends at Turk's Pond after about a half mile.
