Michael W's review
Riverside State Park is a great place. Open pine woods and fir-covered slopes straddle the Spokane River. A variety of species can be found in the park. White-throated Swifts buzz overhead along with Violet-green and Cliff Swallows. 2 Chickadees, kinglets, and 3 nuthatches are seen, as well as several species of woodpeckers. Black-backed Woodpeckers bred in the park for a couple years after a large burn, but they have since left. Lark Sparrows are sometimes found as well.
The river hosts Common and Hooded Mergansers, Common Goldeneyes, geese, etc, while Belted Kingfishers hunt along the banks. Bald Eagles aren't a rare sight in the winter.
