Marshy wet areas are interspersed with flooded farm fields to produce habitat for probers like White-faced Ibis and Long-billed Curlew. Willet and Sandhill Cranes nest in the area. Virginia Rails, Sora, Wilson’s Snipe, and Wilson’s Phalarope are in the wetter regions along with Yellow-headed Blackbirds.
