I have been asked to provide more details for the location of this bird, especially for those birders outside of Fort Collins. Running Deer Natural Area is along East Prospect Road in Fort Collins. The parking lot is off the south side of Prospect Road approximately 2/3 mile west of I-25. Park in the front parking area and walk along the access road leading straight south from the gate. Look for the tall empty nest pole on the right-hand side of the access road out in the marsh. Walk until about 50 yards south of the empty nest pole and look to the south (left) of the pole and west of the pole (away from the access road) for a small open patch of water in the cattails. This patch is probably no more than 30-35 feet across I would guess. The bird seems to like the west side of this open patch of water.
