The Kiwa Trail is adjacent to Oregon ash stands, sloughs, seasonal wetlands, and grasslands. The Oregon ash trees are excellent for cavity nesting birds such as woodpeckers, white-breasted nuthatches, swallows, chickadees, and wrens. The forests additionally attract warblers, wood-pewees, waxwings, and grosbeaks. Watch the sloughs for wood ducks, herons, and turtles. Close examination of the wetlands may reveal bitterns, rails, and shorbirds.
