Lake Isabella Campgrounds Wildlife Viewing


category : Wildlife Viewing
Lake Isabella Campgrounds Wildlife Viewing The South Fork Wildlife Area (SFWA) is a 1271-acre unit of the Sequoia National Forest along the western edge of the South Fork of the Kern River between the western boundary of the privately owned Audubon Kern River Preserve and the eastern shore of the Isabella Reservoir. The area consists of Valley Foothill Riparian Habitat dominated by cottonwood and willow trees. It is excellent habitat for birds with over 200 species utilizing the wildlife area. Many of the birds are neotropical migrants nesting and foraging in the riparian woodlands during summer before flying to Central and South America for the winter. Birders can also find birds of prey (hawks, eagles, osprey), hummingbirds, and shore and water birds (herons, egrets, waterfowl) in and around the boundary of the wildlife area especially when the reservoir water level is high.

Recreation in the South Fork Wildlife Area is abundant and includes hiking, fishing, birding, butterfly watching, nature observation, photography, canoeing, and kayaking.
