Viewing Wildlife

There are excellent bird watching opportunities in the wetlands to the north and west.

This site is hard to beat for its variety of songbirds and woodpeckers in spring and summer. Among those colorful birds are numerous kinds of warbler (orange-crowned, Nashville, yellow, yellow-rumped, hermit, MacGillivray's, Wilson's, and common yellowthroat). Rarities to Oregon that have been found here are golden-winged warbler, Tennessee warbler, and chestnut-sided warbler. You might encounter many species of woodpecker (red-naped sapsucker, downy, hairy, white-headed, and northern flicker). A woodpecker normally found in the eastern U.S. -- yellow-bellied sapsucker -- has been reported.
