Habitat and Birds
Like most of the local “river parks” this one can be good for migrating birds in the spring and fall and waterfowl associated with the river. Check the large trees in the park and the riverfront areas for birds attracted to the river. Possibilities include gulls, herons, shorebirds, owls, hawks, swallows, woodpeckers, flycatchers, vireos, corvids, blackbirds, warblers, sparrows, and finches.
