The public may use waterfowl production areas to observe and photograph wildlife. All activity is self-guided. The public should take precaution during hunting season and wear blaze orange. Wildlife viewing opportunities are abundant, especially during the spring and fall migration where up to 17 species of waterfowl and more than 23 species of shorebirds can be seen. Look for waterfowl species such as mallards, blue-winged teal, northern shoveler, and Canada geese. Common shorebird species encountered are killdeer, yellowlegs, and sandpipers. Visitors also have the chance to see birds of prey like bald eagles, red-tailed hawk, and kestrel. During the spring and summer months many species of birds will breed and nest on the waterfowl production areas.
