Habitat and Birds

There is a good marsh here, as well as open wetlands and open fields.  Watch for freshwater ducks in the marsh. Wintering raptors such as Merlin, White-tailed Kite, and Red-shouldered Hawk are found here, as well as other common raptors and falcons.  In summer this is a good location for swallows, and wetland warblers.  A Broad-winged Hawk was located here in 2007 and a Vermillion Flycatcher was here in 1992
