Easy: The Vardis Fisher bird walk is an easy short walk in a micro-climate created by the warmth of the basalt canyon walls of Billingsley Creek and the 58 degree springs. Public access is limited but the area can be accessed for birding with permission of the current lessee for the festival. This trip with the crystal blue lake, and the old Vardis Fisher home site also becomes a historic tour. The riparian area along the meandering Billingsley creek offers the prospect of seeing or hearing Soras, Virginia rails, Ruby-crowned  Kinglets, Belted Kingfishers, and various warblers and sparrows.
