Season: All Seasons

Walk the levee to view the extensive marsh and its inhabitants: Least Grebe, Black-bellied Whistling-Duck, Purple Gallinule (summer), Marsh and Sedge Wrens, and a variety of herons and egrets. King, Sora, and Virginia Rails winter here (listen for their calling in late winter and early spring). Look for Great Kiskadee and Green Jay in the surrounding mesquite woodlands. Cave Swallows nest in summer in the culverts under FM 1717.
