Place to Bird Watch: Riverside Park
Riverside Park provides the perfect habitat for a wide variety of birds and the best place to watch them, according to Best of the Best results.
The park provides shelter, food and water for almost any type of bird that is native to the region and some that might not be native to the region, said Doug Cochran, Victoria parks and recreation director.
You will find a red shouldered hawk screeching and soaring in the sky, the singing mockingbird, a yellow bunting, a kingfisher, cardinal, blue jay, red-cockaded wood peckers, blue heron, wood duck, mallard duck, mourning dove, roseate spoonbill, egrets and the great green heron just to name a few, Cochran said.
