The patient observer will be rewarded with many wildlife
viewing opportunities. Early morning and evening are the best times to observe
wildlife. Spring migration occurs from
mid-March through mid-May and fall migration from September through November.
Most waterfowl can be found on wetlands along the auto tour route. A variety of other wildlife may be observed
along the trails in the riparian, ponderosa pine forest, or grassland habitats.
Binoculars, camera, field guides, water, and a lunch will
contribute to a pleasant visit. Quietly listen for calls and songs and wait for
wildlife to resume their activities. Use your car as a blind for wildlife
viewing and photography. Observation blinds may be available to allow a
close-up view of wildlife with minimal disturbance.
