Glade Lake - Dolores County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Glade Lake is remote, intermittent, and not to be missed. It has the best waterbird potential in the county and perhaps the best shorebird potential as well. Breeders here include Eared Grebe, Pied-billed Grebe, Cinnamon and Green-winged Teals, Northern Shoveler, Redhead, Ring-necked Duck, and lots of Yellow-headed Blackbirds. Other species that have been seen here include Virginia Rail, Bufflehead, Willet, Least Sandpiper and Red-necked Phalarope. The road south of Glade Lake is good for ponderosa birds including Grace's Warbler and Lewis's Woodpecker. Orange-crowned and MacGillivray's Warblers also breed along this road. Williamson's Sapsucker and Flammulated Owl are almost certainly in the area.
Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Ponderosa Forest, Wet Meadow
Directions: From Lone Dome SWA, continue east across the river to the junction with FR 504 (<.5 miles); turn left. Glade Lake is on the east side of 504, about 1 m past the turnoff to FR 514, some ten miles from Lone Dome.
