Kiwanis Park, Hamilton

The main access is behind Westview Junior High on Main St. west of downtown Hamilton.

This small area offers a variety of habitats including young and old cottonwood forest, a cattail marsh, shrublands, the Bitterroot River, and associated sloughs. Expect to see typical river-bottom species including Wood Duck, Osprey, Spotted Sandpiper, Great Horned Owl, Belted Kingfisher, Lewis’s Woodpecker, Western Wood-Pewee, Gray Catbird, Yellow Warbler, and Bullock’s Oriole. Vagrants sometimes show up here. Birding is good year-round, but spring and summer are best.
