Birders are welcome so long as they act responsibly. The area consists of multiple ponds at various stages of operation. Some ponds contain open water (at various depths), while others are little more than sludge. Weekdays are better for visits, as the gates are often closed on weekends. Key birds: Wood Duck and Greater Roadrunner are present yearround. Wood Stork, Black-bellied Whistling-Duck, Common Moorhen, Least Tern, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, and Dickcissel occur in summer. American White Pelican, Cinnamon Teal, Redhead, and Hooded Merganser can usually be found in winter. 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.
