Habitat and Birds

Band-tailed Pigeons are often heard calling from this location.  Loafing gulls and the occasional Purple Martin can be seen from the open areas.  Black-capped and Chestnut-backed Chickadees are present year-round.  Look for Bufflehead, Hooded Merganser, and Common Goldeneye in the colder months.  Resident nesters include Pacific-slope Flycatcher, Marsh Wren, Swainson’s Thrush, Cedar Waxwing, Purple Finch, and Common Yellow-throat.
