Continued . . . These WPAs also support high nesting concentrations of short-eared owls and northern harriers and are important wintering areas for rough-legged hawks, red-tailed hawks, and northern goshawks. Shorebirds use the WPAs during migration and for nesting. Shorebirds include killdeer, American avocet, black-necked stilts, Wilson's phalaropes, and yellowlegs.
The upland areas support ring-necked pheasants and gray partridges and provide nesting habitat for savannah sparrows, meadowlarks, and song sparrows. One of the WPAs has had a successful nesting pair of peregrine falcons for the past ten years. Smaller mammals include muskrats, striped skunks, mink, badgers, meadow voles, and porcupines. Grizzly bears occasionally visit the southern WPAs.
