Before visiting nearby family today I made a brief stop at a new section of Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. This area was formerly a wild game farm but has now laid fallow for several years. The area is being rehabilitated into upland habitat as this is one of the few remaining places in the state where Northern Bobwhite still re-produce in the wild.
The area was full of Blue Grosbeaks and Orchard Orioles, Field and Chipping Sparrows. Hopefully when the rehab is done more of this 100+ acre area will be open.
