Jackson County Road 30
The willows between Highway 14 and the private Meadow Creek Reservoir are reliable for Veery during the summer months. The road continues past the reservoir through some decent sage, lodgepole and willow habitats, where you have more chances at Veery, Swainson’s Thrush, and American Dipper along the stream. Watch for moose anywhere in the area.
