Habitat and Birds

This mountain lake is surrounded by marshy areas and ponderosa pine. It is located near the pine-sage transition zone so it can be quite active. Birds that are expected here include Common Loon, Varied Thrush, White-headed Woodpecker, Western Wood-Pewee, and MacGillivray’s Warbler.
