        Site Description and Birding Information: Here where Cobbs Lake Creek flows into the South Nation River, is yet another site at which to check the floodplain for waterfowl, especially geese. The flooding is usually less extensive here, but none-the-less worth a brief check. The road is sometimes closed due to flooding. A Greater White-fronted Goose was found here on April 6, 2005.
