Watchable Wildlife

Wildlife viewing opportunities are frequent. Deer, coyote, quail, turkey, and raccoons are often spotted utilizing the mowed trails. Migratory birds, uncommon field species such as Henslow's Sparrow, Meadowlark, and Dickcissel, and raptors such as Northern Harriers are often observed by those with an interest in birding. Woodcock watching is popular in late winter with numerous flight displays taking place at dusk and dawn.
