Welcome to Sierra County! Birding Pt 5

Caballo Lake State Park: Exit 59 off of I-25 or 15 miles south of 

T or C along Hwy 187. Known as the best site for gulls in the state, the northern end of this lake offers water and short birding opportunities which are excellent in winter and during migration seasons of spring and fall. A nominal entrance fee is required and a spotting scope or boat will make this a rewarding stop. Look for Western and Clarks Grebes, Double-Crested and Neotropic Cormorants and White Pelicans. Check with the Visitor Center for a complete bird list. 575-743-3942
