On the west side of US-23 adjacent to Squaw Bay there is a large parcel with a drainage ditch owned by the Nature Conservancy.
Herons, Belted Kingfisher, and Bald Eagles are found along this overflow. The Eagles perch in the large pine trees at the south end of the bay. Both sites host innumerable Red-winged Blackbirds, European Starling flocks, & migrating Warbler species.
