Young Cottonwoods along irrigation ditches will put on a flush of growth in late summer with the final run of water. The new leaves are quite large compared to others on the same branches and they are the last to drop from the trees. The American Kestrel is a resident, nesting nearby and often seen perching atop the Cottonwoods as he hunts for food and guards his territory from intruders.
