Lake Hasty at John Martin State Park

Lake Hasty sits at the base of the John Martin dam and includes a campground with lots of trees that draw neotropical migrants. Though I walked through the campground I could not find any warblers, not even a Yellow-rumped Warbler. I did see a Say's Phoebe working the edge of the trees.

At Lake Hasty I found around a hundred Double-crested Cormorants, about the same number of American White Pelicans, 1 Western Grebe and 1 Turkey Vulture. I took these photos of some cormorants and pelicans taking off from the lake. And the bottom pic shows part of the lake and part of the treed camping area.
