Ireland Reservoir #5 - Weld County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This, the largest of the Ireland Reservoirs and pretty much the only one worth birding, is an intermittent medium-sized lake with some cottonwoods, some Russian-olives, some marsh, and some potential for mudflats. Neotropic Cormorant and Red-shouldered Hawk have been seen here. You may have to climb up the roadside berm to get a clear view of the water.
Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Marsh, Hedgerow/Shelterbelt
Directions: From I-76 at Hudson (exit 31), take CO 52 east two miles to CR 49 and turn left (north). The reservoir is about a half mile north on the east side of the road.
