This is the best hike to view birds.
Birds best before dusk November-January.
Mosquitos may be plentiful in Fall prior to the first good frost. There tend to be a lot around dusk, go more in the middle of the day and there may not be any.
There are also jackrabbits. And the wild roses bloom in April.
