Mullet Creek State Wildlife Area
This 2,177-acre property is a mix of marshes, woods and grasslands. The open water draws many species of waterfowl during migration, while the larger landscape attracts Red-tail Hawks, Northern Harriers, Bald Eagles and Turkey Vultures. Warblers nests in the woodlots, while Baltimore Orioles, Eastern Phoebes, and White-eyed Vireos nest in the scattered trees and brushy areas. Look for Loggerhead Shrikes perched in lone trees, and American Kestrels as they hover above the grasslands and meadows hunting for small mammals. Coyotes, deer, woodchucks and mink are common here; an evening drive should yield many good sightings.
