Jim Hamm Nature Area
This small park near Union Reservoir can quickly be checked for birds. Sometimes there is little of interest, but sometimes, gulls or shorebirds from Union stop in here, allowing a closer look. As a designated bird sanctuary, the pond is the main attraction, but the line of trees north of it might also be worth checking for birds.
