Bagley Bottoms Boat Landing
This boat landing is typical of many that are found all along the Mississippi River. Often these small, secluded areas offer the birder a chance to get close to the river and explore the floodplain forests from a slightly elevated road. A short hiking trail leads to the backwaters of the Mississippi where there are numerous birds to be found on most days. Species such as Yellow-crowned Night Herons, Pileated Woodpeckers and American Egrets are seen in the area.
Directions: From Bagley, travel .05 mile northwest on Cty. X to a point nearly across the road from a private campground. Bohrineier Road takes you across the rail road tracks and down to the boat landing parking area.
