Grover and the CR 124 pond
CR 124 Pond (Weld)
The tiny town of Grover has "unexploited migrant trap" written all over it. Relatively modest coverage has turned up a reasonable assortment of rarities. Its mature shade trees are even more isolated than those at Crow Valley Campground. They generally lack underbrush and many are in people's yards, but on those spring days when Crow Valley is hopping, who knows what could land here?
About seven miles west of Grover, along CR 124 just west of CR 77, is a small agricultural reservoir that can be excellent for shorebirds, waterfowl, gulls, terns and the like. It is always worth a check when you are in the area.

To reach Grover, go north on CR 77 from Briggsdale for 15 miles to CR 120. Turn right (east) onto CR 120 and travel 5 miles to CR 87. CR 120 follows CR 87 to north for a mile, and than east into the town of Grover. Grover can also be reached by taking CR 390, which intersects with CO 14 16.5 miles east of Briggsdale. Go north on CR 390, through the town of Keota, for 20 miles to reach Grover. To reach the pond on CR 124, go two miles past the CR 77/120 intersection and turn left (west) onto CR 124. The road bisects the pond 2.5 miles from CR 77.
