Bird watching is great any time of year, but in the springtime before the cottonwoods leaf out is best. Some rare and hard to find species occur here, including breeding blue grosbeaks, that have historically been present. But not so with many of the birds that are common in the North Reserve today. The reason why Hummingbird Hill was named is in the early stages there were no hummingbird plants, hence no hummingbirds. So hummingbird-attracting plants were planted out and soon the birds arrived too. It also took about a decade before bushtits and other shrubland birds appeared. There are still no resident woodpeckers (not enough dead wood, large trees) and no quail (not enough mature oak trees).

 
     
 
Mammals include Audubon’s cottontail, California ground squirrel, Bott’s pocket gopher, and non-native roof rats, feral cats and possums. Occasionally there are sightings of coyotes and possibly raccoons. There are gopher snakes, western fence lizards, side-blotched lizards, western pond turtles, non-native red-eared turtles, and bullfrogs.
