Located 35 miles east of Burns on Hwy 20, North and South Beede Reservoirs are a set of two lakes on private land just south of the highway.


Habitat and Birds

These lakes are marshy and water levels fluctuate with the seasons. Black Terns and Yellow-headed Blackbirds are here in summer. Other terns may be present in spring and fall. This location will not likely produce birds you can’t see somewhere else in Harney County, but if you are driving by, it can give you a good excuse to get out of the car. The road is narrow and there is little shoulder so park carefully.
