Habitat and Birds

Habitat and Birds: Take this road as long as you like as it winds through farmland, sage flats and canyons. It follows Butte Creek so there are many riparian opportunities here. Birds here include geese, mallards, Common Merganser, Great Horned Owls, raptors, Chukar, Canyon and Rock Wrens, Cliff Swallows, corvids, and hard-to-find-in-the-county Black-capped Chickadee. A Brown Thrasher was found once. A Western Screech-owl was predictable years ago.
