Consider spending a short half day (2 to 3 hours) at the park to survey the birdlife comprehensively.

Begin by checking the grassy fields on both sides of the paved entrance road. Expect to see meadowlarks and bluebirds here in all seasons, with various sparrows in the cooler months. Check the shade trees lining the entrance road for Eastern Kingbirds in the warmer months, and raptors throughout the year. Look for a few shorebirds in spring and fall following periods of heavy rain.
