Habitat and Birds

The proximity to the river provides birders with good possibilities for good birding. Tufted Duck was found here in 1995. Check out the Cascade Locks Marine Park. The surrounding hills south of town can be very productive for passerines and Band-tailed Pigeons. Try a short drive up Dry Creek Road (from Central Cascade Locks, take SW Cascade Avenue toward the freeway. Stay left to SW Ruckel Street. Cross under the freeway, turn right and you will be on Dry Creek Road). Another good road to bird is Herman Cr. Road. Follow the directions to Government Cove and continue on with Herman Creek Road.
