"This area’s flooded fields in the Payette River Canyon make excellent habitat for waterbirds especially in spring and early summer. Ring-necked Pheasant, Gray Partridge, and California Quail are the most common upland gamebirds observed while Canada Goose, Mallard, Northern Pintail, Wood Duck, and Cinnamon, Blue-winged and Green-winged Teal are frequently observed waterfowl species. Wetland habitats also provide ideal conditions for a host of other birds such as Great Blue Heron, Wilson’s Snipe, American Coot, Killdeer, and Red-winged and Yellow-headed Blackbirds. Raptors often seen include Red-tailed Hawk, Northern Harrier, Barn Owl, and American Kestrel. Bald Eagle and Snow Goose winter along the Payette River."
