We stopped at Holloman Lake (in route to White Sands NP) to conduct a recon mission for a future trip. identifies the site as an important bird area in the state and region ( The gate at the head of the access road was OPEN so we drove up the 1/4-mile dirt road to the Lake. We already missed the migration so there weren't birds to speak of, but there was water in the lake and plenty of room for vehicles to space themselves out if needed.
