3 Small Ponds on the southwest edge of Cottonwood Wash. Cliffs border the east side fo the ponds, while the open wash sits to the west, and the town of Bluff to the south. The ponds are surrounded by Cattails, and there are several cottonwoods nearby as well.
If you are in Bluff this is well worth a quick stop to see if anything is present. You might find some waterfowl during winter or migration. BLUE-WINGED TEAL have been observed here. Great Blue Heron occasionally fish here, and the reeds surrounding the pond could turn up other marsh birds. During spring and summer warblers can be found in the cottonwoods, including LUCY'S WARBLER. In 2013 a WHITE-WINGED DOVE was observed in the trees near the pond as well. Bluff doesn't have a lot of birding sites, but being such a small area, each one is worth checking if you are in town. Given the remote location in the desert, anything could turn up here.
From Hwy 191 in Bluff turn west on to Twin Rocks Drive. After you pass the Twin Rocks Trading Post on your right you'll come to a dirt road on the right in about 50 yards. Take a right onto this road and follow it to the gate below the Twin Rocks, or "Navajo Twins". From here walk through the gate and you will have two small pond on your left, and another ahead and to the right at the base of the cliffs
