Habitat and Birds

This pond hosts a wide variety of duck species and is productive year round. Actually there are two separate ponds here separated by a levee. Double-crested Cormorant, herons, shorebirds, gulls, terns, and swallows are all here in season. Swainson’s Hawk and Prairie Falcon may sometimes be seen as well.
