Teller Lake #5

Aliases: Culver Ponds

This lake sits amidst farmland utilized for livestock grazing, crop production, and even beekeeping! The water sometimes attracts interesting waterbirds and Dickcissel has at times bred in the fields to the south. Lark Bunting and Blue Grosbeak have also been spotted here. The nearby black-tailed prairie-dog colonies are sure to attract raptors and other predators. Please note dogs are not allowed at this property.
