Habitat and Birds

This site is normally birded in the winter to look for waterfowl that are mixed in with the very large American Coot flock that winters on the reservoir – normally “upstream” from the covered bridge.  Recently small numbers of Barrow’s Goldeneye have been found in the Willamette River just downstream from the dam.  Common Goldeneye are normally found on the reservoir in the area of the coot flock.  Sapsuckers have been found on the small trees in the park lawns.
