Harvey Gap Reservoir and State Park

0

This large and fairly shallow reservoir isn’t always the best for waterbirds, but it can still be worth a look, especially during spring and fall migration. The occasional loon, grebe, or gull adds some spice to the mix, and American White Pelican is sometimes found as well. The surrounding habitat is mostly made up of meadows and montane shrubland, and is often birdier than the lake itself. Species like Mountain Bluebird, Green-tailed Towhee, Violet-green Swallow, Black-billed Magpie, and Western Scrub-Jay are all possible.
