It's snack time at the wetlands! When you take a look at our two large ponds, you will often see many swimming or wading birds. These birds are attracted to the ponds for many reasons, one of the main ones include searching for and eating fish. Since they eat fish, these birds have adaptations to living near or in water. The Tricolored Heron has longs legs and a long neck that gives them a great view of the fish they can catch with their pointy beak.
You can enjoy a snack while watching these wetland birds from any of our seven overlooks.
