Birds of McCartney Creek Preserve

At McCartney Creek preserve in eastern Washington, a former cow pasture that scientists say was hammered by livestock is being converted back to its natural river habitat.

One indicator of success in this restoration site can be spotted – and heard—in the sky. Populations of sparrows, warblers, robins and other birds are rising. You can view some of these birds in the slide show above.
