Habitat and Birds

A seed company floods these fields frequently and this provides many birds with feeding habitats. Fall, winter, and spring are the best times. Many geese and ducks feed here in winter. Four species of heron (including Green Heron and American Bittern) can be found here. Shorebirds stop-over in spring and fall while Ring-necked Pheasant and California Quail are year-round residents. A surprising number of passerines have been located along this stretch of road so don’t forget to watch for these as well.
