Location

From downtown Madras, turn east on “C” St. and follow it out of town. This road becomes SE Grizzly Rd. and will pass right next to the sewer ponds. Outside of business hours, there is no access to these ponds but they can easily be viewed from the road. If personnel are present, it’s OK to check in with the office. They often will allow you to get a closer look around the ponds.

Habitat and Birds

Many ducks are attracted here in the winter. Expect Bufflehead, Lesser Scaup, Common Goldeneye, Barrow’s Goldeneye, Mallard, Northern Shoveler, American Wigeon, and Green-winged Teal. Low numbers of shorebirds pass through during the migration periods.
