Target Rock's forest comes alive each spring with the arrival of migrating warblers, like this common yellowthroat. (copyright Ed Sambolin)

  Wildlife Observation and Photography
Continued . . .

Target Rock's mature oak-hickory forest, ponds, forest openings and rocky beach offer diverse opportunities to photograph wildlife. Songbirds (particularly warblers), chipmunks, black ducks, egrets and the occasional harbor seal all use the Refuge and can be seen and photographed by patient visitors. An overlook facing Huntington Bay will offer shots of the water from an aerial view, while on the ground shots along the trail will give you images of the majestic, mature oak-hickory forest. Spring bloom pops with pinks, purples and yellow as remnants from the garden estate that once occupied the land flower and grow.
