Habitat and Birds

Habitat: two ponds, river, riparian, paths, grassy parkland, golf course, mixed hardwood/conifer. Several trails are present including a small nature trail behind the north pond. A three mile loop path ( many walkers on trail during main part of day) returns to the starting point. There are several other trails that connect to parks to the east and south across the river. Popular with local birders is the loop trail that connects to Gaddis Park under the freeway. Since this is a city area, be aware that it is used by locals with somewhat dubious intentions. Most times they are passive

Birds: waterfowl, waders, passerines, Green Heron, Anna’s Hummingbird, Acorn Woodpecker, Black Phoebe, Bewick’s Wren, Merlin, Bullock’s Oriole, Common Yellowthroat, Yellow-breasted Chat. Best birding: Oct-Feb, May
