Habitat and Birds
This road winds through farmland and brushy fence rows. Primarily, this is a winter destination and sparrows are the major quarry. However, Bobolinks are a possibility in the area during the summer months. Keep an eye out for Gray Partridge coming off the scrubby hillsides. Swainson’s Hawk can be found here in summer. There are some riparian areas near the end of this loop and Gray Catbird is a possibility. In winter, search the power lines and bare trees for Northern Shrike.
