Habitat and Birds

Bird the small marsh about a quarter mile from the highway. This is a reliable spot to find Marsh Wren at any season. Continue on to the campground, less than a half mile further down the road at a dead end. The campground area can be very birdy, and a hike through the dunes to the beach can yield some interesting birds, as well. Near the top of the hill on the way to the campground, a hiking trail leads to Lily Lake, which can yield typical coast species that inhabit shrubs and open water. Be aware that horseback riding is a popular activity on the road and on the beach, so use caution both when driving and walking near the horseback riders.
