Site Description and Birding Information: Just northwest of the southeastern end of Beavertail Road, it crosses a marsh. There is open water, especially on the southwestern side. The water and edges can be viewed here from the roadway. One can also park at the turnout at the corner and walk the the edge of the marsh to the west. Another path, leading southeast off the end of Beavertail Road, goes a short distance to where a more extensive open marsh area can be seen through the screen of bushes. Look and listen for marsh related birds.
