Magee Marsh–Entrance Road
The stakeout hotspot for the Limpkin has been promoted to a regular hotspot at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area. This hotspot stretches along the entrance road from the Black Swamp Bird Observatory to the Magee Marsh Bird Center. Please use caution when driving this section of the road, as birders often walk along the road here or stop to observe birds from their vehicle. Please do not park along the entrance road. If you wish to walk the road, it is safest to park in the Black Swamp Bird Observatory parking lot and walk from there. A Limpkin was observed in 2019 at a pond along this section of the entrance road.
