Location

These directions are from Bill Tice’s book “A Birders Guide to the Sewage Ponds of Oregon” (no longer in print). From the junction of Highways 34 and 99W in the Center of Corvallis, go north on Hwy 99W. In 0.5 miles turn right just as you are going up on the overpass. After turning right on this unmarked road, bear left immediately at the fork. Then go right at the Tee, and the ponds will be on the left. You can view the ponds from the road and access inside is not allowed.

Habitat and Birds

Lots of waterfowl here and Harris’s Sparrow has been found in the area. Look for shorebirds, gulls, swallows, and quite a few passerines.
