    What to Look For

    Toussaint State Wildlife Area is a sparsely birded but often very productive 231-acre wildlife area on the shore of the Toussaint River. A series of dikes allows foot access and good numbers and diversity of songbirds can be found in migration. Bald Eagles nest locally and there is a variety of nesting marsh birds including American Bittern, American Coot, Common Moorhen, Virginia Rail and Sora, and Marsh Wren. Large numbers of Wilson's Snipe and other shorebirds occur in migration, along with lots of waterfowl.

    Natural Features

    This is a good spot to watch for wetland mammals such as beaver, muskrat, and mink. Occasionally long-tailed weasel is seen.
