Native species showing color are buttonbush, cottonwood, grape, spice bush, poison oak, fragrant sumac, Oregon ash, and arroyo willows, A few of the non-native species showing color are, ailanthus, sycamores, catalpa, and Chinese pistache.
A few migrants birds, like ruby-crowned kinglets, white-crowned sparrows, golden-crowned sparrows, and dark-eyed juncos have arrived. So far, ducks have been limited to the year round species, like common mergangers, mallards, and Canada geese.
