This WMA is managed for dove. Vegetation includes low shrubs, mustard?, rattlebox (many Utetheisa ornatrix). The mustard and some of the rattlebox were blooming. There are a few swamps. Many hundreds of sparrows spend the winter. I was mainly interested in grasshoppers, but made notes of the butterflies.
