        Site Description and Birding Information: This is the second in a series of spots from which to view the Cobbs Lake Creek floodplain. The road will likely be closed due to flooding and you may have to walk SSE along it to get a closer view of the birds. If it is open, the flooding will no longer be as extensive and the birds likely gone. A Tundra Swan was seen in the fields in this general area on April 9 and 11, 2007, resting and flying with a hundred or so Canada Geese.
