Birding Information

1.

Watch for such species as Harris’s Hawk, Plain Chachalaca, Long-billed Thrasher, Bewick’s Wren, and Olive Sparrow. Several species of ducks and shorebirds are likely to be present. During summer, nesting Killdeer, Willets, and Black-necked Stilts vigorously defend their territories. Visits usually produce a dozen species of dragonflies and damselflies, including the typically coastal Marl Pennant and Seaside Dragonlet.
