clear day, a visitor to Solano County Open Space can see the Sierras
on the east and all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge on the
narrower focus may reveal the real masterpiece here.
The steep hilly grasslands, oak woodlands and riparian corridors
provide habitat for a wide variety of species, including many that
are rare and endangered. California golden violets (aka "Johnny jump-ups") provide habitat for rare
butterflies. Several ponds provide prime habitat for the endangered
California red-legged frog. Soils support
native grasses such as purple needlegrass, blue wild rye and
hills are a raptor’s paradise where golden eagles, Northern
harriers, burrowing owls, and Swainson’s, Cooper’s
and red-tailed hawks scan the open grasslands for food. Birders will
delight in spotting Northern orioles, towhees, Western bluebirds,
Swainson’s thrushes, Western kingbirds, black phoebes, tree
swallows, and western meadowlarks. Mammals include black-tailed
deer, coyotes, bobcats, and raccoons.
