Eastwood Wildlife

Eastwood Wildlife

Eastwood’s tall trees and riparian corridor along Dixon Branch, and its proximity to White Rock Lake, graces our neighborhood with plentiful wildlife. The woodland mammals such as opossums, raccoons and skunks are joined by foxes and the occasional bobcat and coyote. The large trees attract a variety of owls and other raptors, and many species of songbirds. Amphibians and reptiles reside in moist shady areas and near backyard ponds. Information below can help everyone live in harmony with wildlife.
