Habitat and Birds

In the river look for Canada Goose and Common Merganser, and in late winter/early spring Common Goldeneye, Hooded Merganser and Bufflehead.   Maybe even a loon or a grebe.

In the marsh Virginia Rail are often heard, also look for Spotted Sandpipers, as well as the occasional migrating shorebird or warbler.  Swallows and Purple Martins are active in the summer months, along with Belted Kingfisher, various woodpeckers, Steller’s Jays, chickadees, Marsh Wrens, Swainson’s Thrushes and robins.
