This small grove of salt cedars has become a birding hotspot. During spring migration warblers, orioles, tanagers, grosbeaks and other migrant songbirds can be abundant in the trees here. Western strays are common including Yellow-headed Blackbird, Lark Sparrow, and Western Kingbird. The sanctuary has two water drips that attract birds and a photography blind is set up at one of the drips.
