Birders will be happy to find quite a few species in the area. A pair of osprey have established Flatiron Reservoir as one of their favorite fishing spots. There are Oriole nests in quite a few of the trees. Great blue herons, meadow larks, red tail hawks, bald eagles, pelicans, and loons have all been seen at Flatiron. Mule deer are active in the area, as well. Please be 'bear aware' and lock your food in hard-shelled containers. Please don't overfill dumpsters. Wildlife will often congregate near the roadway. Use caution when driving in areas that have a lot of animal activity. Be sure to lock your food up and never feed the wildlife.
Our resident geese appreciate responsible disposal of fishing line, hooks, and other trash.
