Birds in the Watershed

Following is a list of birds that have been sighted in the Fauntleroy watershed throughout the changing seasons. We hope you take a moment to observe our fine feathered friends as you enjoy your time here. They can be seen perched in a tree, rustling around in the underbrush, or drinking from the creek. Their songs will delight you and the sight of a small fledgling out with its parents is a sight you will always remember. Use the Birds of the Watershed Checklist to record how many different birds you observe in the watershed. Happy birding!
