Ornithological Summary

Bewick's Wrens have nested fairly consistently at this site for the past six years. During years when they have not been present at traditional locations, it is believed that they still nest in the area. Although unconfirmed, a few reports of possible heard birds from outside the park also exist and additional pairs may be present in surrounding areas.

This site was chosen as an IBA because it met the criteria for Bewick's Wren.

Conservation Issues

Because the Bewick's Wrens often nest in man-made structures, it would be very easy for their nests to be destroyed. Past nesting locations have included outdoor grills and portable maintenance equipment. Current site staff are sensitive to their presence.
