Habitat and Birds

There is little to see at the junction itself and, as of 2009, there were no services at this location. It’s worth a short check in the area to see if the odd grackle or White-winged Dove or a Band-tailed Pigeon might be present (It’s happened before). Other rarities here have included Blue-gray Gnatcatcher and Bewick’s Wren. It’s even possible that a pair of Northern Mockingbirds tried to breed here in 1991.
