Habitat and Birds

The marshy area is just past the tree farm. This is an interesting patch of land. Surrounded by Douglas fir forests a small set of creeks flood a small plain for about a quarter mile. It is filled with willows and Hard Hack shrubs. On one recent and brief stop, a dozen Ruby-crowned Kinglets, half a dozen Orange-crowned Warblers, Varied Thrush, Pacific Wrens, Ravens and a few more species were observed. Little is known of this site so please report your findings.
