In Eastgate Woodlands, a small Great Blue Heron nesting colony is directly above the W end of Riverbank Trail. Brown Creeper, Western Wood-Pewee, Black-headed Grosbeak and Wilson’s Warbler nest here. Swainson’s Thrush sings its beautiful dawn song in late spring, and hummingbirds frequent the delphiniums. Violet-green, Tree and Barn Swallows are common over the river in summer. Downy Woodpecker, Spotted Towhee, Song Sparrow, Bewick’s Wren, Bushtit and Black-capped Chickadee can be found all year. Deer and river otter are occasionally seen. In winter, gulls and Double-crested Cormorant feed and rest along the river.
