Sunnyside Wildlife Area Professional Review and Guide

"As one of the largest gathering places for migrating waterfowl in the Yakima River Valley, the 2,800-acre Sunnyside Wildlife Area earns the designation as one of the state’s Important Bird Areas from Audubon Washington. That designation alone isn’t enough to make the area a great birding stop. The key to great birding in Sunnyside is timing.

Arrive in the summer and birds will be hard to find, but show up in the fall and the area will be hopping with waterfowl. Habitats: Lowland riparian, freshwater marsh, wetland. Specialty birds: Golden and Bald Eagles; Swainson’s and Ferruginous Hawks; Peregrine Falcon; Vaux’s Swift; Rufous Hummingbird."
