This is a good spot for bird watching. Trout Creek flows through private land. If bird watching along the creek, be careful not to trespass.
Songbirds in the warm season are a primary attraction here. Expect several kinds of warbler (e.g. Townsend's, yellow-rumped, and orange-crowned), plus species of woodpecker (e.g. downy, white-headed, northern flicker, black-backed, and red-naped sapsucker). Diminutive forest owls - northern saw-whet, northern pygmy, and western screech - are here, but typically secretive. Other birds include warbling vireo, ruby-crowned kinglet, western wood-pewee, olive-sided flycatcher, house wren, pygmy nuthatch, and western tanager. In the wetlands, look for butterflies, including species of arctic, swallowtail, blue, cloak, and ringlet. In spring, you may discover long-toed salamander hiding under leaves or other dead plant material on damp ground. November brings groups of mule deer migrating to winter ranges eastward.
