Habitat and Birds
Check the town for migrants and invaders like Eurasian Collared-Dove and Western Scrub-Jay. The big draw for this area is the farmland before and after the town as well as the riparian area along the Beulah Reservoir Road Bobolinks have nested here. Bobolinks are late arrivers and early to depart so don’t expect to see them much before mid-June or after mid-August. Other birds here include raptors, Long-billed Curlew, Wilson’s Snipe, Sandhill Crane, Willet, Willow Flycatcher, Lazuli Bunting, and Eastern Kingbird. Juntura is a great place for migrating passerines. In the fall and spring, the trees are full of warblers and other goodies.
