We so much enjoy "The Project" as it is affectionately called by locals in this area. It is especially interesting to see the annual Snow Goose migration along with many other species of birds that stop along the Atlantic flyway.

While birding in the area a local told us that Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area would be the place to view Tundra Swans. Not only did we see the swans we were also treated to a flock of blue birds; a satisfying treat for a winter birder, snow geese and American bald eagles glided over head. A king fisher and a large group of common mergansers gave us long lasting views. White tailed deer strolled the paths seemingly unaffected by our presence.

Clearly marked trails made driving and hiking easy. The visitors center was closed. It is scheduled to open February 1. Portable toilets were available. Remember this is not a wildlife refuge rather a wildlife management area; I recommend wearing brightly colored clothing, hunting could be heard close by.

A self-guided driving tour of the Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area provides time for viewing fauna and flora. Birdwatching was the primary purpose of the visit, but the area provided so much more to enjoy. The Visitors" Center provides displays, a bird feeding station that is viewed from indoors with binoculars provided, programs, and a staff that is willing to provide oral and printed information. Bird lists and flower lists are provided if you keep checklists of what you observe. No matter how many times you visit or do the driving tour there is something to be discovered. We will return to visit.

What a pleasant surprise..stopped on a Sunday to get a short hike in. Trails are very well maintained. A few short ones but so many birds and butterflies. Make sure to look closely in the fields...tons of deer! Center was packed full of bird information. Would think this would be great for kids. Lots of interactive displays. So many hummingbirds! Will be back!
