Chautauqua National Wildlife Refuge
Although known primarily for its waterfowl, Chautauqua National Wildlife Refuge also attracts numerous other bird groups into its forests, marshes, and lakes. Bald Eagles regularly utilize the wetland areas, especially during migration periods. One pair has been nesting in the Melz Slough area at the North Pool since 1994. Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, American Bittern, Green Heron, and Black-crowned Night-Heron are common wading bird species here. Woodland songbirds are also in good supply throughout the year in the refuge's forested habitats.
