    Description

    The woodlands and other streamside habitat of the Sacramento River's riparian system have been severely reduced within the last century. This riparian habitat and its ability to sustain diverse populations of fish, migratory birds, mammals, and other wildlife have been significantly impacted by water control projects, agricultural developments, and other land uses. The species of particular concern are the western yellow-billed cuckoo (Coccyzus americanus), Swainson's hawk (Buteo swainsoni), bank swallow (Riparia riparia), wood duck (Aix sponsa), chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), and the California hibiscus (Hisbiscus californicus), as well as the threatened valley elderberry longhorn beetle (Desmocerus californicus dimorphus) and endangered bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus).
