Autumn at Lucin   (September 2008) by Paul Higgins   ŠPaul Higgins

Description: This small pond surrounded by trees is a "warbler trap" in the west desert of Utah.  Best birding would be in the spring and fall when migrants are likely to be attracted to the trees and water.  There are no facilities so bring water, food and make sure you have plenty of gas in the tank.

     From the South:
Go [west of] Wendover about 32 miles then take the exit (highway 233) to Montello then [about 8 miles] to the turn off to Lucin you only have five miles of good dirt road to go on to Lucin. (by Pat Jividen)
      If your coming from Odgen or up that way go North on I-15 to Tremonton then 84 to Snowville a little passed Snowville take Highway 30 to the Lucin turn off.  (by Pat Jividen)
     General Instructions: Turn south from UT 30 about 8 miles east of the Utah-Nevada border (Grouse Creek Junction).  Go 5 miles on the gravel road until it crosses the railroad tracks.  Turn left and go to the ponds surrounded by trees.

Specialty Birds: Northern Mockingbird, Eastern Kingbird, Western Kingbird,  Ash-throated Flycatcher, Lark Sparrow, Northern Flicker, American Redstart, Black-and-white Warbler, Northern Waterthrush, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Northern Saw-whet Owl and Scott's Oriole.
