Habitat and Birds

The area near the rise just north of the corner of Croeni & Westmark usually has a pair of Lazuli Bunting in late spring (45.569454, -122.906158). In winter this area is good for Western Meadowlark and can have a large number of wintering raptors including an occasional Rough-legged Hawk and Northern Shrike.

Follow Mauzey Road (this road is just east of the intersection of Jacobson & Croeni; labeled Jacobson Road on Google Maps) to where it dead ends (45.566987, -122.900558). This is often a good place for wintering sparrows, with Lincoln’s relatively common. California Quail can often be heard or seen along Mauzey. There are feeders at a house just across the defunct railroad tracks about 50 yds off the end of Mauzey Road which are worth checking. The 2 ponds can have Sora.
