Mary Riley and Burns Holden Roads

These two roads sit just east of Fort Covington and they pass through fields and shrubby edge habitat. Edge habitat may offer Eastern Towhee, Yellow Warbler, or Indigo Bunting, among other breeding birds, while the fields may hold other breeders including Bobolink and Savannah Sparrow. Flooded fields in spring may be good for dabbling ducks attracted to the large puddles and shorebirds on migration may frequent flooded fields during spring or late summer. The area is also good for migrating and wintering raptors including Red-tailed Hawk, Rough-legged Hawk, and Northern Harrier.
