Nature Watching

You will see so much wildlife here that you will be amazed. Deer and squirrel...we've all seen, but what about a ground hog up close, or cute little bunnies that come within feet of you as you are walking.

The birds are so abundant in our woods. Cardinals everywhere! They are so friendly, they typically hang out wherever we are, watching us go about our daily chores. Sparrows, finch, and more flit from tree to tree, talking to each other. At night you will hear the hoot of the owls...if you're lucky you may even hear the babies - who haven't quite conquered their "hooting" skills.

And the frogs! Oh, the many frogs you'll see. Tree Frogs, Bull Frogs, Toads, and more!!! Chirping away, bringing the night alive with their music. We even have our own "Froggy Lover's Lane" where you'll see the little boys calling to their one true love...of the night.

There are many hawks on the property, from large to small. Hunting their prey...or sitting in trees looking powerful, like mighty knights of the woods.

And don't forget the eagles...grand and regal...watching over Colton's Shipping Point Farm. Truly breathtaking no matter how many times we see them.

But don't stop at just the animals. We have many species of trees, grasses, mosses, and wildflowers growing freely on the property. Take a nature walk and see just how many different species you can name.
