Habitat and Birds

Open natural grasslands. Willamette Valley Western Meadowlarks are a species of concern and this is a good location for them. In winter, waterfowl feed here and Snow and Ross’s Goose are possible. Ring-necked Pheasant can be heard crowing here. Fifteen species of raptors have been tallied here; shorebirds  and gulls are found as well. Short-eared Owls have been seen and Northern Saw-whets can be heard (rarely). Both Shrikes and both bluebirds can be located here. Sparrows include Spotted Towhee, Chipping, Brewer’s, Vesper, Lark, Savannah, Grasshopper, Fox, Song, Lincoln’s, White-throated, White-crowned, Golden-crowned, and Dark-eyed Junco.
