Habitat and Birds

Dry oak woodland that borders the Rogue River. In one recent survey, 90 species were located in this park over the course of one year. Waterfowl can be found at this location as they loaf in the slower regions of the river. Ducks, geese, and herons are found here routinely. Band-tailed Pigeons have been seen at this location as have Acorn Woodpeckers, Red-breasted Sapsuckers, and Pileated Woodpeckers. The riparian area hosts Western Wood Pewee, Black Phoebe, Cassin’s Vireo, Hutton’s Vireo, Wrentit, various warblers, 7 species of sparrow, Purple Finch, and Lesser Goldfinch. In 1999 an Eastern Phoebe was seen at this location.
