birds at Siwash Lake
Songbirds, Waterfowl, Birds of Prey, Woodpeckers, Grassland, Wading and Shore Birds... we have numerous species of each at Siwash.
From the rare, prehistoric-type Sandhill Crane to the not-so-Common Loon, you'll enjoy observing our feathered friends in their natural surroundings.
They range from small and difficult-to-spot songbirds to the majestic Bald Eagle. Most of the species here undertake long migrations every year.
Now that a massive wildfire has created a unique and sensitive eco-system at Siwash, we anticipate that we will be seeing some rare, transitional species to excite even the most accomplished birder.
The Black Backed Woodpecker, for instance, adapted by millions of years of evolution, thrives in burned-out forests.
