Villa Park Flood Control Basin aka “Magic Basin”

posted in: Local Birding Spots | 0

A review of local Hot Spots in Orange County California turned up one that was frequented by many however my pursuit to acquire information on how to get there seemed fruitless.  I opted to meet up with Phil Thomas in late February and we attempted to pursue this one on our own.  Phil had good insight of the area which greatly helped in our quest.  Also thanks to Ryan Winkleman for initial tips.

I’ve now included a new page to the Orange County Hot Spots section of ocbirds.com with a shortcut to the Villa Park Flood Control Basin (aka “Magic Basin”) .

The page includes a complete description on how to get there with two options, photos, maps and a video though here’s a sample image with description
