The hardstem bulrush marsh attracts large numbers of nesting waterfowl, especially redheads, and colonial nesting birds, including Franklin's gulls, Forster's and black terns, white-faced ibis, snowy and cattle egrets, black-crowned night-herons, and great blue herons. Playa areas surrounding the marsh attract migrating shorebirds in spring and nesting shorebirds, such as black-necked stilts and American avocets, in summer. Trumpeter swans are sometimes observed. More detailed birding information can be found in "The Birder's Guide to Idaho."
