Haviland Lake State Wildlife Area

0

A beautiful mountain lake surrounded by ponderosa forest and a campground — what more could you ask for? Look for a variety of montane bird species, including Evening Grosbeak, Grace’s Warbler, Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets, Brown Creeper, and Williamson’s Sapsucker. On the lake itself look for Ring-necked Duck, Pied-billed Grebe, and a variety of other waterfowl during fall migration. Pine and Abert’s squirrels and golden-mantled ground-squirrels can be seen in the trees.
