Have you heard of Woodie's Roost? This little traveled trail is most easily accessible from Magee Marsh Wildlife Area. Park in the Sportsmen's Migratory Bird Center parking lot and walk across the road to reach the trail head. This is a 1.6 mile loop and takes you through a variety of habitats- from marsh to woodlands.
For those looking for wood ducks, this is one of the best spots. The combined habitat is perfect for this unique species. Come at dawn or dusk for your best chance at seeing a wood duck.
We have been checking this spot for monarch butterflies as well. The trail is loaded with common milkweed, providing ample food for both adults and caterpillars.
