The Oregon Garden grounds include white oak woodland/savanna, lake/reservoir, marsh, riparian woods, urban parks, young conifer forests, and perennial and flower beds. Virginia Rail, Sora and possibly Blue-winged Teal breed on-site. Vaux’s Swift, Rufous and Anna’s Hummingbirds, Western Scrub-Jay, and Bewick’s Wren are common in summer. In winter, ducks abound on the ponds, and Lincoln’s, White-crowned and Golden-crowned Sparrows are around the gardens. Pileated Woodpecker, Green Heron, and Cooper’s Hawk are seen regularly. Entrance fees vary by season; see www.oregongarden.org. Good birding is also found outside the gate, at ponds along Main St and Pettit Pond (just S of the main entrance). On your way to the Oregon Garden in the winter, be sure to scan the Lake Labish Ditch for shorebirds flocks, which can include Black-bellied Plover.
