Greenough Park

This 42-acre city park is located in a riparian woodland along Rattlesnake Creek. Although easily accessible from town and heavily used by pedestrians, the minimally developed park maintains a high diversity of bird life. Pedestrians may enter from the corner of Vine St. and Greenough Dr. A parking lot is located on Monroe St., from which the entire park can be visited by taking the loop trail to the right.

Resident species include Western Screech-Owl, Great Horned Owl, Pileated Woodpecker, American Dipper, Red-breasted Nuthatch, and Song Sparrow. Northern Pygmy-Owls, Bohemian Waxwings, and Varied Thrushes visit in winter. Summer residents include House Wren, Swainson’s Thrush, Cedar Waxwing, Red-eyed Vireo, warblers, Bullock’s Oriole, Black-headed Grosbeak, Lazuli Bunting, and Spotted Towhee.
