Bird Roost Preserve


    A small but important woodland swamp of Red Maples and Tupelo, the fact that it borders on Beaver Lake has attracted large numbers of Double-crested Cormorants and both Great and Snowy Egrets to roost there at night during the summer months. In addition, it is used by hawks, herons, kingfishers, and other birds in daylight hours. For many years, their young ospreys from Osprey Nest Preserve have located there to learn their fishing skills and even a young Bald Eagle has been seen there.
