Habitat and Birds
Extensive riparian area along Rock Creek at the bottom of a canyon. Warbling Vireo, Bullock’s Oriole, Western Kingbird, Lazuli Bunting, Rock/Canyon Wren, warblers, flycatchers and a good place in the county consistently to find Black-Capped Chickadee. One report of Gray Catbird and a Red-Eyed Vireo was seen in May. Also watch for raptors. Slow in the summer but if there is water, it’s worth checking out. One should spend time checking the entire stretch of trees as something good might be hiding in there.
