Birds of Cedars

          Of 91 bird species we've seen and heard here, Katherine has been able to photograph seventy, which you can enjoy in the four slide-shows below:

Large (11), Medium (24), Small (21), Petite (14).

          At an elevation of 6300 feet, Cedars sits among and between several habitat types.  We get birds from open fields as well as birds who like forested areas.  The year-round water adds a variety of vegetation types, from riparian to forest to open sagebrush.

          Some species are here year-round, others nest here, others are chance sitings in Spring and Autumn, and others spend the Winter months.

          Enjoy your stroll through these slide shows of Cedars' resident and seasonal birds, then peruse the Cedars' Life List below.
