The descriptions given are for public sites. Specialty birds: Resident—White-tailed Kite. Summer—Least and Elegant Terns; Hooded Oriole. Winter—Western and Clark’s Grebes; Cinnamon Teal; Hooded Merganser; Peregrine Falcon; Long-billed Curlew; Short-eared Owl. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, a detailed map, and helpful general information.
