Olney Springs Reservoir
The small town of Olney Springs has a little reservoir with some good trees, especially on the other side of the canal. The reservoir may be dry at times. Check the trees for sparrows in the colder months, and for flocks of migrants in spring and fall. Mammals that might be seen in the vicinity include mule and white-tailed deer, rabbits, red fox and coyotes. If the road is gated, you may enter on foot.
