There's a great willow snag out at the back of the next door neighbor's property that is perfect for owls and hawks, but I've also seen a lot of other birds pause there. It's difficult to plant (intentionally) new trees that close to the creek because digging a hole and putting a tree in means it will probably get washed away next time the creek rises. It really needs to plant itself.

I have a volunteer cottonwood in a pot near the back door, and I've considered taking this little thing down and putting it in, maybe it will suck up the water so fast it will get established before the next flash flood.
