What used to be a pond for Sims' Bait Shop is now a thriving riparian habitat full of cattails, Red-Wing Blackbirds and Black-Crowned Night Herons. The plethora of Herons roosting in the massive Black Willows squawking with the songs of Blackbirds create a cacophony only surpassed by the zooming Pacific Coast Highway nearby. Fortunately for the birds and wildlife, the pond is densely bordered by Native Mule Fat, Black Willows, Tule Grass and Cattails.
