Rectangular ponds host a variety of waterbirds, including whistling-ducks, cormorants, Anhinga, and an occasional Ringed Kingfisher. During summer, watch for Least Tern and Least Bittern. Trees around the facility attract Great Kiskadee, Couch’s Kingbird, and Altamira Oriole. An Eastern Screech-Owl is usually visible in its roost hole in a large ash adjacent to the headquarters. During summer, listen for Groove-billed Ani and Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet.
