Habitat and Birds

This site is a forested butte along the Willamette River in the middle of Eugene.  It’s best known for the spring migrants that can be found around the top of the butte.  There are numerous trails in the park that provide access to bird.  If you don’t find many birds on the butte, try the bike path along the river, at times it can have more birds than the butte.
