Habitat and Birds

This area is a seasonal playa lake that is bordered by marshy areas. It often goes dry by mid-summer. Just about any species of duck can show up here and Redheads often breed at this location. Barrow’s Goldeneye also breed here if water levels are high enough. Sandhill Cranes use this area to stage and occasionally breed. Even Veery have been located here.
