Site Description and Birding Information: The marsh on the northeast side of Munster Road 0.2 km north of its junction with Kettles Road is home to American and Least Bittern, Virginia Rail, Sora, Alder Flycatcher and Marsh Wren. The conifers around this marsh should be checked for species fond of the food they provide. This is an excellent owling spot too. Northeast of the junction, along Kettles Road after dark, listen for Whip-poor-will and watch for them on the gravel road.
