James M. Robb – Colorado River State Park, Corn Lake Section

There are two units of the Colorado River State Park close to each other here, both fairly comparable. Corn Lake, to the east, has more facilities, a nice pond that sometimes plays host to dabbling ducks, and nice willow and riparian growth. A paved trail runs from here to the Colorado River Wildlife Area unit of the state park a couple of miles to the west, through excellent riparian habitat. Look for Lazuli Bunting, Yellow-breasted Chat, Great Horned Owl, ducks along the river, and migrants in season. At the Wildlife Area there is another pond, this one with more marshy growth around the fringe (look for Marsh Wren, Yellow-headed Blackbird, and shorebirds in times of low water), and more riverside riparian.
