Peck Road Water Conservation Park in Arcadia boasts a high species count (250+ over the years) due to its combination of lake, landscaped park, riparian and weedy habitats. This trip is timed for the peak of fall migration, and we'll be looking for songbirds and shorebirds moving through the area, and the first few wintering ducks to arrive.
Take note that much of the terrain at Peck is on sandy slopes of various grades. For the first part of the trip, we'll aim for the more friendly routes, but later on, we may visit the wilder parts of the park where steeper slopes, encroaching vegetation, mud, urban debris, and the occasional coyote are possible.
