These wetlands feature nesting Great Blue Heron and Green Heron, as well as Great Egrets in winter. Northern Harrier and Bald Eagle are often seen, and shorebirds stop by in migration. A spotting scope will help you to see the heron rookery in Durham City Park (across the railroad tracks). Belted Kingfisher and Rough-winged Swallow nest in the bank across from the boat ramp. The Tualatin Riverkeepers (www. tualatinriverkeepers.org) offer public canoe trips from this site each summer. A pedestrian/bike bridge connects to Tualatin Community Park (T1). Other trails give birders access to the Tualatin River and Hedges Creek Marsh in Tualatin.
