Montezuma Audubon Center

Over the weekend, we went to the Montezuma Audubon Center. It's a great place to spend the day for free! It was closed when we were there before. It's a neat place but this time, storms threatened and we did not get in a long walk. There are several areas in the vicinity to take walks and observe wildlife. You can pick up a map there. There is also a place right next to it to put in a kayak or canoe.

In the birds nest, there were baby birds and in the picture above it, you can see the adult birds that kept flying in and out of there-worried over their babies.

The facility is on Rt 89 just east of the village of Savanah and Rt 31. There was a boy scout program going on while we were there. The woman working at the desk was very helpful and nice. I highly recommend going here! Be sure to go down the road a few miles and check out the Montezuma Refuge and the other areas of interest, such as Howland's Island.

These pictures are from the Audubon Center, the Montezuma Wildlife Refuge Center, and different areas of the Refuge.

Even though it threatened storms on and off, the sky was a beautiful sight over the refuge.

Check out the live Osprey cam here. It is also broadcast live on a TV in the visitor center.

A few of the birds we saw:

Bird with a red bill. Not sure what it is?

Great blue heron.

An Indigo bunting.

A red winged blackbird.

There is lots of activity going on all around you, you just have to be still and watch for it.
