Water and trials

You are able to view the water ways and see the birds in the water. Walking the trials you see more birds then you can count. Just a nice place to relax.

but I just couldn't drive by without stopping and pulling out the binos for a few minutes. It was an unplanned stopover, and even though I didn't see anything terribly exciting it is nice to now know where this is along the birding route.

The birds were abundant. Eagles, kites, herons, egrets to name a few. The dikes where you can hike could be better mowed so you can find your way. The "observation tower" is more a deck. Still, enjoyed seeing the birds.

A great place to view wildlife, especially bald eagles. On my last visit there were more than 12 of them in one area. Great place to view waterfowl and see melanistic garter snakes.
