Wading birds and ducks are typical bird-types encountered in the wet areas. Gray catbirds call from thickets, and ruby-crowned kinglets fuss from the trees. A vermillion flycatcher may be here for one of its irregular Winter vacations. American kestrels are stationed at their territories in the surrounding countryside. Common yellowthroats provide a dash of color. Late weeks have American robins being the most numerous area bird.
