Sometimes referred to as "Burriston Ponds", it is actually Burraston Ponds. Several ponds connected by small waterways sitting in the bottom of Mona Valley. The ponds are surround by various trees, making it a nice riparian habitat and migrant trap. It also provides ideal habitat for various waterbirds.
During spring and fall migration the ponds act as a stop over for migrating waterfowl and some shorebirds and waders. The real attraction for birders is the location and trees which create a migrant trap in an otherwise fairly barren valley. Various warblers, flycatcher, sparrows, tanagers, and orioles can be found here during migration, and there is always a chance for something interesting to show up given the remote location. Utah's only record for YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON came from a one day wonder here in 1996. There is also a single report of a RED-NECKED GREBE from 2010. AMERICAN REDSTART, TRUMPETER SWAN, CASSIN'S VIREO, and EVENING GROSBEAK round out the notable sightings here.
