Eagle View Natural Area
Not yet open to the public, an accessible eagle viewing blind and picnic area is envisioned for this site, with care being taken to avoid disturbing great horned owls and other wildlife that use this habitat. The southern portion of Eagle View provides a quiet spot for eagles that perch in the trees at the edge of Fossil Creek Reservoir. Great horned owls roost in cottonwoods near the irrigation ditch, and great blue herons, black-crowned night-herons, ferruginous hawks, and prairie falcons are sometimes seen here. Rabbits, coyotes, foxes, and deer also visit this natural area. Formerly in agricultural use, this site is being restored to native vegetation.
