Ferris Reservoir - Dolores County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This lake is a little smaller than Glade Lake, but very similar in habitat, and closer to the road, so it is a highly recommended birding spot. Breeding birds here are similar to those at Glade Lake, though more cattails may mean a higher likelihood of finding rails.
Habitat: Lake, Marsh, Mountain Meadow, Ponderosa Forest
Elevation:
Directions: From Lone Dome SWA, continue east across the river to the junction with FR 504 (<.5 miles); go south (straight) on 504, not left. In about a hundred yards you will reach another left turn, which is FR 521; turn left here. About eight miles from this intersection, FR 521 will be joined by FR 520 coming in from the right at an acute angle in a meadow. Ferris Reservoir is just southeast of this intersection.
