MacDonald’s Reservoir

0

You may find some good birds on this pond and its marshes. The lake is private but easily viewed from the road. If you continue on this road for several miles, you’ll reach some dead ends in good scrub oak/ponderosa habitat. These areas might be explored for the locally rare Grace’s Warblers and Hepatic Tanagers, but please respect private property while exploring.
