The habitat here is primarily agriculture, shrubsteppe, and open fields. It is not a high value habitat, but often floods in the spring providing wet fields for migrant waterbirds. There are scattered shrubs and trees along the road as well. In all the road is typically birded for for 2 block south of 5200 south, but various roads in the area can provide more birding opportunities. There is a pond along 5400 South at 4800 west that often has waterfowl at it as well.
Typically this location is not visited on its own, but is added on for those who are checking out 4000 West & Lakeshore, or River and Swede Lane. The poor quality habitat is usually best in spring when flooded fields bring various waterbirds like WHITE-FACED IBIS to the fields. These flocks provide the opportunity to look for GLOSSY IBIS. One of the main features of this area is the private pond to the west along 5400 south where various waterfowl are found in the spring, especially diving ducks. GREATER SCAUP and CANVASBACK have both been reported here. If the fields in the area are flooded there is a good chance that migrant LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER, LONG-BILLED CURLEW, MARBLED GODWITS, and WILSON'S PHALAROPE might be present. Notably large flocks of BANK SWALLOW have been recorded here in the spring as well. Birding can be done on foot or by car, and is generally more productive in the morning and evenings, but during migrations waterbirds are likely to be present throughout the day if the fields are wet.
