Habitat and Birds
This delightful park involves a loop trail around a lake, with a second lake visible from the back side, surrounded by cottonwoods. It is a good spot to get a decent number of species in a relatively short period of time. The water gets a good variety of ducks with Hooded Merganser, Wood Duck and Pied-billed Grebe. Black-capped Chickadee, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Bewick’s Wren, and Western Wood-Pewee are among the birds frequenting the trees. Black Phoebe has nested there many times and Belted Kingfisher are fairly common. Great Horned Owls have nested there in the past and often roost there during the day.
