Habitat and Birds

In the summer Swainson’s Hawks are present and are replaced in the winter by other raptors including Rough Legged Hawks.  This area is good for wintering flocks of Sparrows, Pipits and Horned Larks. The occasional Lap- land Longspur can be found mixed in with them.  A few Long-billed Curlews  visit this area every spring. This was the last stronghold for Gray Partridge in Central Oregon. It is rarely seen now.
