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.
