Habitat and Birds

This is a large lake that has very large flocks of water birds (grebes, coots, waterfowl, etc.) in the winter. The road around the lake, toward Ada, provides numerous places to scan the lake and parks/boat ramps to bird the dense forests. Parking passes are needed at some locations.
