Seymour Lake State Wildlife Area

This small reservoir often doesn’t have the huge bird concentrations of other North Park lakes, but it is still worth a check if you are in the area, and can be a good place to get close looks at birds. It can be fairly good for ducks, and shorebirds can be found if the reservoir is low enough to produce mudflats. CR 28, to the north of the reservoir, can be a great place to look for Greater Sage-Grouse, especially in mid-morning during the lekking season, when birds are flying from the leks to feeding areas. Coyotes, deer, and pronghorn can also be seen here.
