Description: Remote and little visited, this spot has the potential to be a first-class migrant trap. Tall cottonwood groves and a dense willow understory define this location. There is also some good brush along the small creek, and a small pond. This is a good spot to find Red-bellied Woodpecker. White-tailed deer, rabbits and foxes take shelter here in the only cover for miles in any direction.
Directions: From the intersection of US 160 and CR DD (Maplewood St.), just west of the town of Walsh, bear right onto CR DD and go east for 12 miles to the entrance to Burchfield SWA, on the right.
