This is a well-crafted bird habitat that's a pleasure to stroll through. It's hard to remember that you're so close to a city when you're out here!

We were there in winter and mostly saw waterfowl. But we did see a roadrunner and lots of hummingbirds. And we heard other birds but we're not birders so didn't spot them. The place itself is beautiful and relaxing and well worth a visit.
