Dome Lakes State Wildlife Area

0

The two medium-sized lakes here are definitely worth a check if you are in the area. They can have breeding ducks including Green-winged and Cinnamon Teal, Gadwall, Lesser Scaup and Ring-necked Duck, and phalaropes and possibly other shorebirds in migration. Watch for coyotes hunting in nearby fields. When the rabbitbrush is in bloom, it can attract swarms of nectaring butterflies.
